Schools from throughout the county took part in the Lincolnshire Schools Under 13 and Under 14 Rugby 7s, hosted by Market Rasen’s De Aston School last week.

The event was organised by De Aston teacher Jon Miller and there were a record number of entries for the third year running with nine pitches being in constant use.

The only local winners were in the U14s Plate with Caistor Grammar School picking up the prize after finishing third in their group.

Caistor Grammar’s Under 13s won their group games against John Spendluffe, Alford, Market Deaping and the Priory School Lincoln to go through to the knock out stages, before facing defeat.

Huw Williams, from De Aston, said: “De Aston’s U13 A team won three out of four games in the group stages, scoring 95 points and only conceding 15.

“Jacob Bennett and Marcus Payne scored particularly highly. Unfortunately the boys lost out in the quarter finals. The U13 B team played with pride and were very well lead by Joe Kavanagh-Stagg.

“Meanwhile the U14 A team showed a great deal of promise, and Mr Williams, Head of PE, was proud of the less experienced players in the U14 B team, in particular Morel Kone Fezing who scored two tries in only his second ever Rugby game.”

A number of De Aston’s Sixth Form students refereed the matches and Market Rasen Rugby Club lent their clubhouse and its facilities for the day at an event in which more than 5,000 pupils took part.
