U11 Football and Rugby vs. Chesham Prep
26 Apr 2012
After some early fog the sun shone brilliantly for a day of rugby and football against Chesham Prep.
The A team were first into action on the rugby pitch and although they battled well, the opposition's experience and slick handling proved decisive and Chesham were the comfortable winners. The B team played next and their game followed a similar pattern to that of the A team. These games were only 10 minutes each but were followed a 12-a-side game for all to take part in. This proved to be a more even affair and the Perse team was more equal to Chesham in many areas. Tom Baldwin put in some big tackles and Louis de Simone proved an elusive runner. Although the game was lost, The Perse proved to be a tough opponent and did succeed in crossing Chesham's line.
Following lunch, the boys headed to the astro for two football matches. Again, the A team played first and both teams showed high levels of skill on a very bouncy surface. The game was settled by a long shot into the top corner by Chesham but the Perse team was unlucky not to score on several occasions. The Perse B team was the better side in their game but found the Chesham keeper to be fine form, ending the game with a 0-0 draw. This proved to be a very enjoyable day for all involved, and hopefully something which will be repeated in the future.
