Andover Rugby Club U12's Sponsored by AVK The Power People went to the Hampshire County Tournament trying to go one better than last years beaten finalists.
Conditions were not great, first game drawing 1-1 with Havant. Next up was Trojans who managed to squeeze us out 2-1 after having in excess of 2 mins and extra playing time. We went on to beat Gosport & Fareham and then Fordingbridge. This meant coming 2nd in the pool lining up a semi final with the old enermy, Winchester. After no score in the 1st half and 2nd half, we went to extra time and sudden death. Two more halves were played again with no side able to cross the line and was to be decided by a coin toss. Not the way to win, but it set us up with a local derby final with Overton, where the boys came out 5-1 eventual winners and becoming - The Hampshire County Plate Final Winners.
Coaches and parents could not have asked for more. The commitment, passion, aggression and will to win came through and some of the best rugby the boys have ever played in easily the worst conditions ever.
