Success for Mini/Youth
- Thursday, 21 April 2016
The Club's Mini/Youth sections have been enjoying end of season success bringing trophies back to Gosport Park.
The Under 9s were invited to send a team to the Leicester Tiger Challenge tournament at Bognor which is a national tournament hosting mainly touring sides.
The Celts team played six sides, remaining undefeated at the end of the second day and won the tournament.
Apparently club manager Jean Robson's face was "a picture" when she saw the size of the monster trophy she had to find a home for!
The Club turned out in strength at the Overton Spring Festival and were triumphant with the U7s, U8s and U11s winning their competitions.
The U9’s were runners up in their pool and wins by the U10’s added to the Club's overall tally of points that are counted towards the Overton Spring Cup final results. With such a spread of wins, the Club were awarded the Spring Cup which they proudly bring back to Gosport Park after a one year absence.
There has also been individual success for Harry Rabjohn who has just attended his first Bronze Programme training session at the London Irish Academy, having been selected from the Hampshire Developing Player Pathway that he has been part of this season.
Coming after a season that has seen him score 20 tries for the U13 Ravens side, this is reward for his hard work and that of coaches Richard Daly, Paul Wilkinson and George Bell who have coached him in the seven years he has been playing for Gosport & Fareham RFC.
Proud winners with the "monster" Tigers' Trophy.
