Parkside Year 7 Boys Win Rugby Tournament
Tuesday 9th April
After enduring some very unpleasant conditions whilst training, the sun decided to make an appearance for the annual Redditch and Bromsgrove rugby tournament held at Redditch RFC.
After 3 warm up games and 3 victories the Year 7 team were in good spirits arriving at the tournament. To progress to the final we would have to win our group which consisted of Parkside, Woodfield and Birchensale. The boys were fantastic from the first whistle to the last, comfortably beating Birchensale 35-0 and Woodfield 42-0 to progress to the final.
The final was played against Alvechurch. They were also unbeaten in the group stages. The teamwork and commitment on display from Parkside was immense and we found ourselves 21-0 up at half time. Alvecurch rallied in the second half, scoring early in the half to make it 21-7 but Parkside were determined and scored again to make the final score 28-7.
History was made and for the first time ever Parkside were Year 7 District Rugby Champions!
