Mud mud glorious mud !
There is never too much mud for U9s
Sunday morning saw Southport U9 travel to Sefton rugby club in West Derby.
Cold and damp but keen players turned up to face each other in the mud !
How much fun can you have in the mud ?
Fresh clean and ironed shirts, knotted tummies and mashed nails at 11 were replaced by wide muddy grins and a real sense of achievement !
A one hour match with rolling substitutes - so each of the 16 players from Southport got turns to both play and train worked really well !
Some outstanding tries by Henry, Lewis, Jack P and Luc were the product of some great link play from our trio of fantastic ladies - Aimee, Charlotte & Katie.
Our usual slow start saw Sefton run in 3 tries in quick succession and coach Ellis had to apply a handbrake to the "drift " defence.
This worked as the ever improving Kit made some monumental tackles to stop wave after wave of Sefton attacks.
After an hour of playing and training the final score - 23 tries a piece !
Webb Ellis would have been proud to see the game he created all those years ago - played with such enthusiasm by both sides who played with passion, vim and vigour all morning !
Well done all and here's to some better weather !
