Lowestoft & Yarmouth youngsters impress for Norfolk
PUBLISHED: 16:57 02 February 2012
Four Lowestoft & Yarmouth RFC youth players selected for Norfolk County sides last weekend.
Three members of the Lowestoft & Yarmouth RFC Under 17 squad made their County debut on Sunday afternoon, playing for Norfolk against Cambridgeshire in an Eastern Counties trial match.
The event was originally intended to be a three-way tournament between all three ECRFU sub-counties, but unfortunately Suffolk was not able to field a side on the day.
The match, split into three 20-minute sessions to allow all the lads in the squads to participate fully, was a full-blooded and hard fought affair with Norfolk coming out ahead in each of the sessions; accruing an aggregate score of 43-12 overall.
All of the L&Y contingent gave a good account of themselves; Martyn Greenwood played all three sessions whilst Shane Burwood and Tyler Beales played two sessions each; with the final session seeing all three on the pitch at the same time. Congratulations must also go to Nathan Sutch (Lowestoft & Yarmouth U15s).
Nathan played for Norfolk U15s during their defeat to Suffolk at Southwold Common.
