BROMSGROVE U10s acquitted themselves well at the Kidderminster Carolians tournament, reaching the quarter final. Their results are as follows:

Bromsgrove U10s 10 Kidderminster U10s 0. The forwards ensured good possession to enable Joseph Garner to score the opening try. Henry Cowen showed quick reactions to score a try from the front of the lineout close to the opposition goal line.

Bromsgrove U10s 20 Redditch U10s 10. In the second game some position changes caused confusion but they soon ran in four tries. Try scorers were Joseph Garner (two), Henry Cowen and Stephen Edgar.

Bromsgrove U10s 0 Camp Hill U10s 5. In the quarter final, Camp Hill started strongly pinning Bromsgrove into their own half for most of the period. Town defended well but were unable to keep out the concerted onslaught and conceded a try late in the first half. Bromsgrove started the second half with greater determination but they were not able to capitalise on their pressure.

Droitwich U10s 15 Dudley/ Kingswinford U10s 0. In the same tournament, a solid performance with tries from Chris Reece, Bobbie Scott-Walker and Nick Houlston. Jack O'hara worked hard to keep the defence tight.

Droitwich U10s 5 Moseley U10s 5. The Spa forwards were at their strongest and both teams didn't give an inch in a bruising game. Tom Stedmen, Sean Storey and David Edwards were all strong in the tackle. With Matthew Simkiss calling the shots at scrum half it was no surprise to see Nick Houlston run Spa into the lead with a well worked effort. Spa were unlucky not to hold on to the lead but a draw was a fair result. Liam Herlihy was the star of the show with Luke Price and Richard Hardisty both working well as centres.

Droitwich U10s 0 Worcester U10s 30. Droitwich were faced with a quarter final against the favourites and gave their all to try and beat their local rivals. Spa's tackling was excellent but they went down to a good handling side. David Millington worked hard throughout.

Bromsgrove U12s 31 Old Salts U12s 17. Starting from the first whistle Town dominated the forward exchanges and won all the scrums irrespective of put-in. Tom Hinks was the driving force behind their performance, with strong, aggressive running, good cover tackling and he scored three tries. Alex Phillpott made some excellent tackles and for the second week in succession Sam Fox-Smith proved elusive from full back. Other scorers: Joe Harper, Thomas Cole, Tristan Etheridge (three conversions).

Bromsgrove U12s 15 Worcester U12s 20. The Worcester lads started quicker than Bromsgrove who could not get their game together for a while. This pressure paid off as they scored two tries to take a 10-0 lead. The setback seemed to wake up the 'Grove team with Liam Mullan and Chris Dearden starting to make ground in the forwards and a superb handling move led to Tom Hughes scoring in the corner. Unfortunately Tom was injured in scoring and took no further part.

The second half was almost a replica of the first. Town, struggling for a while and playing in fits and starts, allowed Worcester two tries. Having woken up, Bromsgrove dominated the final quarter and tries by Liam Mullan and Matthew Newman closed the score to 15-20. Worcester defended grimly against some organised Town mauling and their backs made the tackles as 'Grove attacked through George Crook, Matthew Newell and Ashley Pogson but Worcester held on to win.

Bromsgrove U15s 10 Camp Hill U15s 7. Camp Hill were first to put points on the board with a converted try. Bromsgrove had to take the initiative and were rewarded with a fine run from Tom Garner who broke through three tackles to score under the posts. In the second half, Bromsgrove's front row dominated the loose and set play with excellent performances from Toni Casamassa, Brent Leech and Will Cadman. The match was finally decided in the last ten minutes with a penalty by Ollie Wells.

Silhillians U16s 30 Bromsgrove U16s 5. This was a hard fought cup contest and the result slightly flatters the victors. Up front Peter Bertegin, Paul Pinfield, and James Jarvis were always prominent and in the back division Steven Bainbridge and Peter Davies were always dangerous runners and caused a lot of problems. Sils scored first with a try and a penalty but Bromsgrove came back strongly, scoring a concerted try through the improving Ritchie Davey. It was lack of concentration which handed the initiative back to Sils when a loose pass was intercepted to score under the posts. Both sides had their chances in the second half but it was Sils who converted them into points.

Bromsgrove U14s 35 Old Saltlians U14s 0. Showing their best technical skills of the season, Bromsgrove entertained with long passages of slick running rugby. A steady stream of possession from the forwards saw the backs confidently use their full repertoire of moves with winger Dan Davenport profiting with a hat trick of tries in the first half. Not wanting to miss out on the score sheet, the second half saw forwards Jason Fowler and Sam Parrish (two) power their way over for further tries. James Upton and Owain Norman each added a conversion.
