The Under 9’s played against a touring team today from Newcastle (Staffs). They travelled down on Saturday and spent the day as guests at Kingsholm and watched the Gloucester V Leeds match (19-0). Before spending  the evening with us socialising at the club.

The first match was a friendly mixed game of U10’s and U9’s – Newcastle gave us a taste of things to come 🙁

The second game was a straight U9’s competition – Tewkesbury 0 Newcastle 5

Both teams showed lots of skill and determination in different areas of the game. Newcastle showed great vision, looking for space and exploiting it, coupled with some great passing at speed which proved to much for Tewkesbury. Despite a huge amount of effort put in by the Tigers wining the ball in the rucks and mauls.

Following the changes announced by the Government on Wednesday 9 September in relation to the ban on groups of more than six people meeting socially indoors and outdoors. Although social gatherings of more than six people will be banned in England from Monday 14 September, the Government has confirmed that organised sports and activities that have been through return to play protocols can continue. With the exception of clubs impacted by local lockdown restrictions, we remain at Stage D on the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap. The rugby community can continue to organise non-contact fixtures with other clubs using Ready4Rugby and other touch rugby activity.

Please see our Clubhouse page for more information about Track and Trace and face-coverings.
