The evening of the 26 June saw The Grammar School Year 13s play their last games of rugby for the School in a ‘Triangular’ tournament against Ratcliffe College and Trent College at Quorn Playing Fields. In what has been a very testing year it was fantastic to see our boys play with great spirit and energy. It was an evening to remember: the rain held off; the sun was shining; there were many parents and friends supporting on the side-lines.
The Year 13s have had a stellar rugby journey through the School; highlights being losing narrowly in the last 32 of the national NatWest Cup to Warwick and delivering a heavy defeat to Stamford in Year 11. It is a real shame that the boys haven’t been able to finish their rugby with a full season, however, I do hope that yesterday evening was a good enough send-off that they deserve. I hope that many of these boys keep playing rugby and keep in touch with the rugby programme at the School.
Thank you to Calre and Marie for serving up over 70 burgers to the players and to Mrs Hackett, Mr Korosi and Mr Sollars for their support on the side-lines.
