Andover ASF Partnership sponsored RFC U12s had a great day out at the Winchester Emerging Festival on Sunday.
In line with the ethos of an Emerging festival we selected a team based around our newest players - some of whom had not attended a festival before.
The boys started brightly in our first game against Gosport and Fareham, producing a 3-0 win.
The Adept Power Solutions sponsored Andover RFC U13's travelled to New Milton for their first ever 7's tournament, with 11 players, many of whom had never previously played this format of the game. The tournament was reduced to a round robin league of 6 clubs, with each team playing all 5 other teams. The opposition was strong, with 2 teams from current county champions Tottonians, and hosts, and Andovers frequent bogey team over the years, New Milton.
Andover U 15 34 Farnborough 15
UK media sponsored Andover U 15 turned in an impressive performance at Goodship Park last Sunday to dispose of a much fancied and dangerous Farnborough.
The visitors sported a huge pack and some willing runners in their backs, but they could not quite cope with the greater technique and powerful running of the Andover forwards and the devastating pace Andover possess in their backs.
