The King’s Junior Department U11 rugby team has recorded an unbeaten season, winning all 15 of their fixtures.
In what is being regarded by the King’s rugby staff as one of the best pools of all-round young talent in recent years, King’s dismantled their closest rivals with 50 points winning margins against Manchester Grammar, Stockport Grammar and Cheadle Hulme.
Captain and playmaker Ollie Davies controlled the side from fly half with his mercurial running and handling skills setting the tone for a fluid 9 man game.
The powerhouse forward platform of Ben Chong, Ollie Jones, Billy Bridgewater, Noah Wolstenholme and Callum Chopping constantly provided top quality ball for live wire scrum half Ollie Carter, with lightning quick three quarters Zac Wright, Edward Roden, Christian Tattum, James Hartley, and top scorer Billy Birkett finding the gaps.
King’s Head of Junior PE Joe Walker said: “The last unbeaten U11 Junior side went on to be unbeaten at under 13 and 14 level. With strong players joining in September as the boys transfer to the Senior Division, we expect them to become a superb first XV and hopefully realise their full potential.”
Rugby coach Mike Walton said: “It has been a pleasure to coach these talented young men throughout their time in the school. They have continually strived to improve their performance, both in training and during fixtures, and we wish them every success as they make the transition into Senior Rugby.”
