KING’S Ely’s U18 Rugby Squad secured two wins at the Rosslyn Park National Schools Sevens on March 26th.

The boys represented themselves and the school superbly and were chuffed to meet former French Rugby Union player Serge Betsen.

Director of Sport at King’s Ely, Jim Thompson, said: “After a month of intense training which included running clubs, lunchtime sessions and after school training, there was a huge amount of excitement about attending the tournament.

“We played four games on the day against Coventry College, Downside School, Lycee International de Londres School and Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys. Our boys performed superbly on the day, winning two of their games, which is also the first time in the school’s history that we won two games on the same day at Rosslyn Park.

“The boys played some outstanding Rugby and should be proud of gaining two well-deserved wins. It was a hugely rewarding day, and one that they, and I, will remember for many years to come.”

The Rosslyn Park National Schools Sevens is organised by Rosslyn Park F.C. and has evolved into the world’s largest Rugby tournament with some 9,500 boys and girls aged 13 – 19 competing annually from over 800 schools.

Huge well done lads!
