Burfield - and a couple of Letchworth U15s - at the National 7s

For the first time in several years, Letchworth U15s - when combined with Saracens - were sufficient in numbers to permit us to make an entry to the National 7s. However, due to the large number of players who were unavailable, we had to reluctantly withdraw from the tournament. At Letchworth, we had two players - Sydney and Florrie - who were both fit and definately available to play and they, of course, were now without a team to play for ...

Step forward, Burfield U15s. Burfield (that's Burton and Lichfield from Staffordshire) were also suffering problems with player availability and they kindly offered our two girls places in their squad for the tournament. So on a rather damp day in Harpenden, Sydney and Florrie put on Burfield shirts and took to the field with determination to do their best for Midlands side.

Sometimes things that are driven by necessity can work out really well and, happily, that is what happened last Saturday. The coaches and girls from Burfield were friendly and welcoming and our girls had a great day. Of course, what made it even better for everybody is that Burfield played superbly to win the Plate competition. What a great result!

Now, with many thanks to the girls and coaches from Burfield, here are a few pictures of the U15s in action ...

I can't resist putting this one on the blog again - well done, Burfield!

And, finally, the Letchworth girls of both age groups show off their medals -

    On behalf of the Burfield U15's, thanks to Sydney and Florrie. It was a pleasure to have them in the squad and they made a significant contribution. Florrie was introduced to the scrum half position and Sydney scored loads of tries.
