U12s triumphant at Maidenhead Festival
Sunday 9th October 2016
Building on the success of the previous week's tournament at Windsor Maidenhead field 2 teams for their own festival. Pool a saw some terrific rugby being played against Tring, Newbury, Henley & Bracknell. Maidenhead came through with strong defensive display without conceding a try to set up a superbly fought final against Henley. I think many people would have paid to buy tickets for this match, the quality of rugby was so high. Maidenhead came through by full time. It was wonderful to see both sets of players walking off together chatting about the game.
Maidenhead :- Will Chandler, Alfie Bristow, Brandon Pidgeon, Charlie Myall, ( Capt) , Ed Ridley, Ollie Hodgson, Harrison Hall, Charlie Webster, Ben Morgan, Louis Banks, Will Keylock. Tom Molhoek, Teilo Andrew,Christian Melhuish & Jakob Allen.
With tough pool games and A teams in the B pool, a terrifically competitive pool saw Maidenhead Bs play in the final against Redingensians. Another great match with a last gasp try denying the double for Maidenhead RFC.
Maidenhad Bs :- Will Paveley, George Dennis, Malachi Fleming, Archie Norman, Cameron Bellamy, Josh Barry, John Child, Will Mackay ( Capt) Willem Bateson, Jack Staunton, Arwen Morgan, James Gillard, Harris Sinclair, George Grover, Dawud Maher, Kieran Herne Smith.
