The Sidmouth U7, U12 and U13 boys, together with the U13 and U15 girls, were amongst a group of over 100 juniors and parents at the event.

The youngsters formed a tunnel for Newcastle and Exeter players to run through on their way onto the Sandy Park turf before the match and then took part in a half-time parade around the pitch.

The season is heading for a close with the forthcoming, much anticipated, ‘Heroes and Villains’ junior section tour to Cornwall, where matches are to be played against teams from Redruth, Cambourne and Newquay, followed, on Sunday, March 25, by an England RFU U13 girls’ training session being held at Sidford.
