Under 12s – Winners at the Sale Sharks Rugby Festival 30th April 2016


Congratulations to the U12s on a thoroughly deserved win at the Sale Sharks Festival.

Once again today, the boys demonstrated their fighting spirit with a commanding performance over three matches. The disappointment of losing in last week’s semi-final did not affect either the team spirit or the resolve of the U12 boys; they came out fighting and they played to win.

Eccles faced three strong opposing teams, but the quality of play and effort levels of our boys paid off. It was a fitting end to a very successful season and our first piece of silverware. This season, we have had 16 wins and only 2 losses in our Sunday fixtures. In the two tournaments entered, we were semi-finalists and then winners today!

The development in our game is evident. The boys are becoming more confident in their positions, are supporting each other effectively and are working well as a team; passing, tackling, strength and determination all improving.

Well done boys!
