Fakenham Academy VS Beeston Hall.
Wednesday 21st November 2018
We arrived at Beeston Hall with high spirits amongst the team and a warm welcome from Beeston.
After a short warm up we went straight into the game.
The squad of 12 was as follow…
Wilf Barker (U12)
After a cold start both teams started to warm up and get into the game. It was fairly evenly matched until Henry Robb broke free and scored our first try. After a long end to end half we went in at half time 1:0 up. In the second half the Beeston squad applied lots of pressure and we were defending, what felt like, all the time. They scored two tries in quick succession which inspired our team to pass and attack. From a scrum, Archie Barker was able to pass the ball out to Callum Wright. Callum subsequently spotted Finlay Page in open space and passed the ball to him. Finlay was then able to run through and score our second try which made it 2:2. There were now only five minutes left which felt more like ten! Beeston scored their third try in the dying seconds and the whistle blew.
The final score was 3:2 to Beeston.
We had a team talk at the end led by Mr Leat who congratulated the team on a great effort against a very good team and he suggested we would benefit greatly from more squad training together.
Wilf Barker (U 12’s) was awarded Man of the Match!
