The U14s season overview

Unfortunately we don't have anything like the full score and individual records for the U14s that the U17s have, mainly due to the girls playing in a number of different combinations with other clubs (and sometimes under different names!) which makes record keeping a bit tricky!


Overall the results for all club games played during the season which included Letchworth players (regardess of what the team actually called itself) were:

Played: 18 - Won 8
Wins: Cramberleigh (2), Hertford, Kettering, Saracens, Thomas Becket, Welwyn (2)

Now that is actually an impressive list, including all main county rivals and the eventual U14 Sevens winners. Okay these were achieved - to a greater or lesser extent - by combining with a variety of other clubs, but even so - and considering that you are actually all U13s (if not younger) not U14s - it is something to be proud of.


These results included three tournaments:
  • Rochford - where we were helped by some Boudiceas, finished third - and were the highest ranking Hertfordshire team;
  • National Cup - where a couple of you appeared in a mixed county team that reached the semi-finals
  • Herts Sevens - where we were helped by several clubs. It was a tough draw for you all, but you performed well - and above all enjoyed the day.
Looking ahead:

The two big problems have been player numbers, and a lack of opposition. It was just bad luck that we had a whole run of fixtures after Christmas against teams who turned out not to have U14s - compounded by the one game that we had arranged against a club with a U14 side being cancelled when they double-booked, not to mention the Kettering debacle.

We are all therefore really proud of how you have all stayed together. Hopefully we can again try recruit a few more girls next season so that as U15s you will be able to stand alone more often!

In the meanwhile if is likely that the U18s and U15s next season will work together much more - which most clubs do, and which we did in out first season (and it worked well). As for coaches - fingers crossed but I might have someone who can at least "help out". And it could be a female coach too (as some of you were hoping) but no more for now. Also several U18s will have coaching certificates and will be looking to try out their skills on volunteers...

Finally.... Superteams - don't forget! Laura has already said she wants to take part, so lets have a few more of you!
