WISBECH Rugby Club's under-9s went all the way to the final of the Cambridgeshire Cup, despite missing key players.

An exhausted Wisbech lost the final 8-1 to Cambridge and Cameron Finlay was their only try scorer.

The Wisbech boys received runners-up medals from Premier League player Jon Vickers of the Northampton Saints.

Wisbech beat Saffron Walden to a place in the final on their tries record for the day after their semi-final finished 0-0 after extra-time sudden death.

Earlier Wisbech had beaten Ely 3-2 and Shelford 5-4 with Finlay (3), Frank Etherington (2), Oliver Simpson, James Shelly and Finlay Wilcox all scoring tries.

Player of the week was Wilcox who captained his team by example with a superb all round performance.

Coach Alex Wilcox said: "I'm extremely proud of how the team played.

"To reach the finals of the county cup with key players missing and no substitutes is a credit to all the boys.
