When we arrived we found out that our pool had changed completely and we were in what seemed to be the hardest group of all.

The team rose to the challenge and never disappointed as always.

Our first game was against Lydney. Sam Thomas scored early in the first half providing us with the start we needed. A strong battle ensued between two evenly matched sides. Lydney went onto score two tries to take the win.

MOM – S.Thomas

Our second game was against St Mary’s Old Boys who proved to be very strong and injuries to key players, loss of structure and a lack of tackling saw Tewkesbury go down to a large defeat.

MOM – N. Knight

Our third game was against Bredon Star. The team picked themselves up from the previous game and provided an extremely entertaining and close game. Jack Brinn came very close to giving Tewkesbury the lead early in the first half after some strong attacking rugby but unfortunately was held up on the line. Bredon subsequently scored two tries to secure the win.

MOM  – E.Perry

Our final match was against Stroud which again provided a very good and close game with both teams rucking and counter rucking extremely well. Stroud scored two tries to win the match.

MOM – J.Brinn

We were extremely proud of the team as they never gave up and fought hard against strong opposition.

Well done boys and girl.

Thanks to all our dedicated supporters who are always there.

Looking forward to next year.
