Under 10s
Match 1 Pool A
Wellingbough Vs Kettering 35-0
Against the old adversaries Wellingborough came out
with something to prove and within two minutes Prop
Remi Hussein powered through Kettering's defence to
score Wellingborough's first try.  This was quickly
followed within a minute from a long pass from Flyhalf
Patrick Sullivan to Jake Kneeshaw who took a line
between Ketterings Centre and Wing to score.  With this
lead Wellingborough pushed hard on the Kettering
defence with tries from Max Dalton, Patrick Sullivan
and a brace from Tim Matthews.  Remi concluded business
in the last minute to complete the 7 try win over

Match Two Pool A
Wellingborough v's Stuart and Lloyds 25-0
A first time start for AJ and Christoph who made
immediate impacts on the S&L defence and Evie Probert
taking a pop pass to sprint through their ranks and
set up Patrick Sullivan for the first try with four
more scored before the final whistle.

Semi Final
Wellingborough v's Long Buckby 15-0
A hard fought semi-final with both teams demonstrating
their strengths Long Buckby passed the ball wide on
several occassions only to be hit by very physical
tackling by Wellinborough backs.  Scrum Half Matt
Walker was amongst the try scorers with a lovely
darting run around the scrum to score one of the best
tries of the day.

Wellingborough v's Old Northamptonians 5-15
This was the fourth time the teams had met at
semi-final or final of a comptition this year, all
honours having gone to ON's.  In all matches
Wellingborough had missed scoring a single try, so in
the second minute when Wellingborough crashed over to
create an early lead the supporters were ecstatic.
On's came back three minutes later 5-5. Early in the
second half Remi Hussein fell awkwardly leaving 8
players on the field temporarily.  ONs seized on this,
ploughing through the forwards to score 5-10. The win
by ON's was completed in the closing seconds with a
last gasp try.
