U9 Northampton Saints festival Saturday 17th Feb
A fresh sunny morning greeted the players and their coaches at Franklins Gardens as the boys warmed up for the Saints festival. Buzz had two sides representing the under 9’s.
Dan Allen led the coaching team for one side which saw the team lose their first four matches of the morning session to Olney, Long Buckby, Rushden and Peterborough.
Some food during the lunch break seemed to perk our boys up and they proceeded to win the rest of their matches by at least three tries; beating Bugbrooke, Boston, Northampton Old Scouts and Rushden.
The development throughout the day was clear to see, going from slightly disjointed and underperforming to clearly understanding their roles in the game and linking passes and moves together positively.
The team consisted of Oscar, Vaughan, Ted, Oliver, Liam, Joseph, Noah, Josh and Ewan. Top scorers were Oscar (9), Vaughan (8) and Ted (6).
