After an encouraging performance last week in our opening fixture we welcomed Windlesham. We called up both Sonny and Harrison into the squad after some impressive performances in training. So with a squad of 11 we felt we had a number of bases covered. It became evident from the outset that Windlesham were a far stronger outfit than St Christopher’s. They had a couple of powerful boys and some tricky wingers so this was going to be a tough affair. We ended the first half 5-2 down and knew that we had to find another gear in the second half to get back in the game.

Our second half performance was a real team effort as we battled back to lose 7-6. It was great to see the commitment shown by all the boys and how they are supporting each other on the pitch. Positives once again were your off loading in the tackle and the fact you never gave up. We will be working hard this week on our defensive realignment. Thanks to Mr Serjeant for referring and to the parents for coming down and encouraging the boys. IP
