Hastings Festival 7 October 2012
Great day at the Hastings Festival, the difference in the performance from the previous week at Haywards Heath was amazing.
The squad was similar to the previous week with a couple of changes including players who hadn't played a festival, but the performance was so much better with players playing with energy and commitment and taking individual responsibility and therefore the team looking well balanced and well drilled.
Of our 4 pool games we won two against Lewes and East Grinstead, drew one against a strong Crowborough side and narrowly lost one against Hove, even this was very close with a breakaway try against the run of play.
We came third in our group and went into the Plate final which saw Heathfield come out as strong winners with a well deserved 5-2 victory.
Congratulations U11s, a truly great day and much to be proud of.
