Alne Primary School Boys Crowned Champions at Twickenham Grand Final

Four boys from Alne Primary School, made up four of the 9 a-side team for York (under 9's) Rugby Union Club. Will Kinnersley, Toby Price, Steele Barker and Joseph Toomey were key players in the team that travelled to Twickenham on Guinness Premiership Grand Final day as a warm up match to the Grand Final between Leicester and the Saracens.  The local boys had won through a national rugby tournament at Nottingham Trent University over the Easter weekend. The tournament held over 2 days saw the York U9 team play 7 games against some very established and larger clubs to earn their rite of passage. The Twickenham final, against Lymm, was a hard fought, physical contest, with rucking, mauling and tackling that would make some seniors blush. Lymm threw everything at the York team, but York's impenetrable defence and domination in the contact area ensured turn over ball that denied Lymm momentum and gave York the chance to counter attack. This stale mate continued for the duration of the match, in a tough battle of wills and attrition. This close fought contest eventually ended up in a 0-0 draw. Despite the score line, it was an exciting and tense game that saw a committed set of boys, on both teams, produce quality rugby, considering their tender age. Due to competition rules, and tight scheduling before the big game, there was no time for extra time and both teams were declared champions, sharing the cup. The boys then earned a well deserved place in the stadium to watch the senior final, in what turned out to be a classic game of rugby.York juniors train at 10 o'clock every Sunday morning and will commence next season's training on the first Sunday of September. There is a fine team of qualified coaches, and new players will be most welcome. Please come down to Clifton Park next September and give rugby union a go with no commitment for the first month.
