Southam College Girls Rugby club attended their first rugby festival at Old Leamingtonians Rugby Club. The festival was ran and put on by the coaches from England rugby and gave the girls an opportunity to really embrace the sport.
When we arrived the coaches took the girls through some funny friendly warm up activities with the other girls from Bilton, Aylesford and Stratford.
At which point the U15 girls moved onto a contact game against a team which combined the girls from Bilton and Aylesford. This was the girls first contact match and they fully embraced this seeing some huge tackles being made. Izzie Hannay took on a lot of the running and was more than happy to run at the opposition. As the game progressed you saw Katie Cummings joining Izzie at running through the defence and being successful in scoring tries. The girls did not shy away from tackling and big tackles came from Aoife Williams and Kacie Cherrington. Myself and Mr Ginger could not believe our eyes at how much all of the girls have progressed but also how confident they grew throughout the evening.
Unfortunately a few schools dropped out of the festival today which had a negative impact on the U13 age group. However this was a great opportunity for the girls to get some extra coaching with a few students from other schools. Hopefully next time there will be a few more schools who attend so the girls can get a larger game. However similar progress was made by the year 8 girls seeing Poppy Lumis and Olivia Constable putting in some excellent, well timed tackles.
It was lovely to see so many girls taking part and enjoying their rugby this evening. Rugby club will not be on this week but will be back on again on Wednesday 7th December got the last session before Christmas. Well done again ladies for your commitment and progress so far.

Last evening the year 10 girls badminton team went across to Campion to take part in the Level 2 School Games tournament with the hope of going through to the Level 3 competition.
The team consisted of Jodie Coombs Prole, Lydia Crompton, Aoife Williams and Megan Coats. The girls played against 4 other teams in 4 doubles matches. Considering the girls had only come together for this event I was extremely happy with the results, as the team finished in 3rd place behind Kingsley and Kenilworth. The pairing of Lydia and Jodie convincingly beat both Campion teams and narrowly lost out to Kenilworth. Megan and Aoife had similar success seeing them also win half of their matches throughout the evening.
Unfortunately the team didn’t progress to the next round but they did perform well and have done themselves proud.
Well done girls,
Well done girls. More practice and the next level next time. Mr Elkerton
First game was against Myton A team and we won 3-2. Again playing with 6 players, we managed to give an amazing performance. Kacie Morby managed to get 2 brilliant goals and played excellent throughout the game.
With Kacie’s lay off I managed get a goal. Aoife Williams and Jodie Coombs-Prole took turns in goal and played really well communicating the whole way through the game. Kasey Cheringtion and Carly Lucas were excellent in defence and cleared every ball that came to them – showing no fear!
The second game we played which was against NLS. We knew they are a good team so we went out with our heads held high and gave it our all. We managed to finish the game 0-0. We had a lot of chances but unfortunately we couldn’t find the back of the net. However, as this was our toughest game a 0-0 finish felt like a win!
Overall it was a great effort by all! Shauna O’Neill – Captain
