This weeks M+J news!

It’s been a busy start to the season in the M+J section-Many thanks for your help and support!

As we approach our first fixtures please remember to complete your player registration – including payment- this provides the player with a unique “RFU number” allowing players to take part in matches and tournaments throughout the season as a member of the Union and the benefits that brings.

-So what’s been going on..
The u10s took part in a Festival at Millfield with schools from across the county and had a very successful day.

This weekend we had our first Joint training fixture with Burnham which was a great success –the U9s having their first taste of contact, the u12s had a very competitive game which will set them up well, The u11s got back to playing ways,the U10s as ever did well with their very strong squad, along with our u8S and u7s taking evasion to a new level!

–The u13s didn’t have a fixture and with their regular coaches at Bath Academy on a RFU training course some of the Senior squad stepped up to train them…wow what a brilliant active session ! Bet that squad slept well Sunday night!

We also hosted the first Girls U13s development festival – 100 u13s girls 6 teams – one them our very own Mendip Girls squad made up of Tor, Wells, Cary and Cheddar girls – the quality of rugby played was outstanding!
