Seven teams across the county participated in the first-ever Gloucestershire Junior 7s at Newlands Park in Cheltenham.
At the home of Cheltenham Tigers RFC, some of the finest u15s/u16s squads played in a round-robin format in order to determine Gloucestershire’s best junior side. During the 21 matches, the spectators witnessed an action-packed day of the new Olympic sport.
The many high-quality matches showcased some outstanding 7s talents, who were pleased to gain the opportunity to join one of few junior 7s tournaments. Eventually, it was Longlevens RFC who claimed the Cup trophy ahead of Spartans RFC.
Despite a lower participation than expected, the tournament organisers were still very pleased with the outcome of the day. We like to thank all participating teams, referees and first-aiders for their support. In addition, a special mentioning goes out to the GRFU and Cheltenham Tigers RFC for making this event possible.
