WHILE the senior side battle relegation - Wisbech Rugby Club’s youngest stars have been bringing success to Harecroft Road.

The under-7s waltzed to victory at the Spalding Festival at the weekend, beating Boston by seven tries to five in the final to win the 2011 shield.

A hatful of tries from Jenson Nunn, Ben Wilcox, Joshua Bell, Will Griffin, Oliver Murdoch and captain Oliver Mann helped the youngsters beat Stamford and Spalding, as well as claim a draw with Lincoln, on their way to glory.

Meanwhile, debutant and player of the week Henry Hoyles had a strong festival for Wisbech under-10s.

Frank Etherington, Cameron Finlay, James Shelly and Finlay Wilcox scored tries for the under-10s, who beat Lincoln but fell to defeats against Peterborough and Stamford.

Wisbech under-8s recorded two draws and two losses. Jack Fowler and Luke Fox were in inspired form, running in five tries each, and they were well supported by fellow-scorers Sam Howat, Nathan McKenzie and George Howat.
