Double Win for Stamford
Stamford Schools’ rugby players enjoyed a great weekend at the Newark Schoolboy Sevens, running off with both the Under 16 and Under 18 Trophies. Inspired by Louis Grimoldby and Oli Fountaine, the Under 18 team enjoyed their best wins over Nottingham High School, Ashville College and Hymers College, and finished the day unbeaten.
The under 16s, led by Ben Lovell, Kieran Staunton and Tom Gulland, defeated Woodhouse Grove in the final pool game before beating Oakham School in the semi-final. They then had to dig deep to come from 12-0 down in the final to defeat Stowe School 24-12. Coach David Jackson was pleased; “To win both trophies was great. All the players have worked really hard in training and it paid off.”
