Sidmouth Under-7s played their first matches of the season when they entertained Withycombe at Sidford.
With a good turn-out of players – Sidmouth had 20 players on parade – it meant four teams being fielded!
With Withycombe fielding two strong teams, some highly competitive matches were played with the large Sidmouth squad of players benefiting from some extra time in the training paddock to polish up their ball handling skills in between games.
A great deal of local rivalry was evident across all of the matches played, both sides impressed with great rugby skills that resulted in good competitive play, fantastic attacking running, fast paced end-to-end duals with some great tries and defence providing thrilling rugby for the onlooking crowds of parents.
Sidmouth coach Steven Trim said: “Results from the four games played saw many drawn fixtures and some very close scores. Overall a draw between all sides was the final and fairest outcome of a good day; a great game experience for all involved.”
