TRY-MENDOUS: Fortnight of cup glory for Wisbech’s young rugby stars
THE future continues to look bright for rugby in Wisbech after young stars from across the area celebrated a fortnight of cup glory.
Wisbech Grammar School’s Under-13s started a triumphant two weeks by winning the Lewis Booth Memorial Trophy in a sevens tournament last weekend.
The youngsters had also played the day before - but they produced an energetic display to dominate their group.
Luke Marney and Henry Thornton scored the tries which secured the trophy as Wisbech beat Ampleforth Preparatory School in a tense final.
But things got even better at the weekend as Wisbech Rugby Club’s youth sides powered to more silverware.
