Lowestoft & Yarmouth Rugby Club Under 13s were unstoppable when they came out top of their group and undefeated after travelling to Stowmarket for the final rounds of the Eastern Counties Under 13 Festival.

The 15-strong squad played four 15-minute games and began with an impressive win against Stowmarket, scoring six tries. Next up were Brightlingsea who were solidly defeated 3-0. In game three Harwich put up a spirited defence but were found wanting after scoring two tries to L&Y’s three.

The final game was against Wisbech who were a try ahead with two minutes to go. But the L&Y lads kept their heads and took a last-minute opportunity to score an equalising try.

The U12s joined forces with the U13s and several new players joined the club. With a lot of hard work from players and the coaching team led by Michael Massey, the improvement has been impressive.
