Leighton’s U13 Girls went to Chesham on Sunday afternoon where they joined up with Aylesbury and Tring U13 Girls,(ALT Girls) to take on four other teams in the Bucks Invitational U13 Girls Festival.
Playing four games the ALT’s won three and drew one. Their first three games were against Chesham Wycombe, Marlow, Beaconsfield followed by another combination side of Bletchley, Olney, Harpenden and then Fullerians. ALT’s last game was against Ampthill, by which time both sides were showing signs of tiredness, but it was a great game, keenly fought and a deserving draw for all who partook.
After all the games medals were presented to everyone by Helena Rowland of Loughborough Lightnings, England 7’s and England 15’s. The event was well organised and the weather ideal for open running rugby. Thank you, Chesham, for hosting and Bucks for organising. Also thank you to Helena Rowland for your time and presentations.
Anyone wishing to experience rugby for girls, training is on a Tuesday night 7-8pm and contact for Ladies on a Thursday 7-8pm at Leighton Rugby Club, Stanbridge Road.
