Eastern Counties Champions

Southwold U14's Become Eastern Counties Champions
Southwold Rugby Club hosted the U14’s Eastern Counties Final, this was a three way competition between Norfolk Cup winners Norwich, Cambridgeshire Cup winners Huntingdon and Suffolk Cup winners Southwold.
The first game saw Southwold beat Norwich 19-6. Norwich then played Huntingdon which saw Huntingdon win 25-7 setting up a final game between Southwold and Huntingdon in which the winner would be crowned Eastern Counties Champion.
It was a hard fought game in which Southwold took an early lead but Huntingdon came back in the second half to bring it back to 12-12, another well worked try by Southwold brought the score to 17-12 and although Huntingdon were pressurising the Southwold line in the remaining few minutes the Southwold defence held and the final score was 17-12.
All three teams entertained the crowd with some fantastic rugby.
Thanks to all the teams, coaches, parents and supporters for a great Final and to Robert Temple from Eastern Counties for attending to present the trophy.
