The Under 14's age group trains every Sunday.
At this stage of competitive rugby we aim to teach and develop the squad to play as a team, embrace the spirit of the game and most importantly have fun! We are playing to the new transitional rugby rules where the emphasis is on attacking space, offloading in contact.
We play against local clubs and enter a number of festivals and tournaments throughout the season.
We train on a Sunday morning from 10:00 AM until 12 noon (unless we have a match !). During our training sessions we combine structured drills with game based exercises. The structured drills focus on passing and tackling and techniques while game based exercises are aimed at improving reaction, decision making and team work.
We encourage team play and to a friendly competitive spirit - with naturally a chance for parents to then cheer on in support of their children.
We always welcome new squad members and are happy for your child to come along and give rugby a try! The squad members are representative of most of the schools in the area and it is likely your Year 8 child will already know somebody that plays.
If you are interested in coming along, or if you have any questions, please give the Team Manager a call. Details are below.
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.
"The Adept Power Solutions sponsored Andover U13's welcomed Basingstoke on Sunday 13th March, to the Goodship ground, for the Hampshire County Plate final. A strong start by the team saw some dominant play by the forwards, winning good quick ball in the loose, and allowing the backs the time and space to move the ball out to their wingers Leo Lee and Louis Pereira who were able to test the Basingstoke defences out wide. Some good covering defence by Basingstoke restricted the scoring opportunities, however they could not stem the tide for long and Leo Lee soon went over in the corner. Another backs move involving Sam Harding breaking into the line from full back,soon brought Andovers second try.
U13's reach County Plate Final in style
The Adept Power Solutions sponsored Andover RFC U13's welcomed Gosport and Fareham to the Goodship Ground for the Hampshire County Plate semi final. Having had a stiff run out against Newbury last weekend, the players were sharper and more match fit than they had been for a while. They started strongly, putting G&F under pressure from the kick off, won the ball back, and moved the ball wide to score in the corner after only a minute or so of play. This was quickly followed up by a second try, after some great work by the pack to outmuscle their opponents and set up the backs again.
