Following a long lay – off due to Covid restrictions it was an exciting day for Lytchett U15’s as they travelled to Bestwall, the home ground of Swanage and Wareham to play their U15’s.

Lytchett were looking to build on their recent success of winning the Lytchett 7’s U15’s cup in early August.

 A warm welcome awaited Lytchett as they arrived at Bestwall. It felt good to be focusing on rugby and both sets of fans eagerly awaited the appearance of their respective teams. After the warm up it was down to business as the teams ran on to the pitch readying themselves for kick off.

Mitchell Sibley was making his Lytchett U 15’s debut starting at outside centre. It was great to see a new player welcomed into the team and enjoying his debut. Well done Mitchell.

The whistle blew for kick off and the two evenly matched teams started the game committed to attacking rugby and solid defence. With both packs competing for domination it was the Lytchett pack who edged the contest with some disciplined rucking. There was a superb display from the Lytchett back row, both flankers first to the breakdown and competing well causing problems for Swans.

 However Swans were an effective team with the ball in hand and crossed the Lytchett try line first. Lytchett, not to be outdone showed great determination in dealing with this setback and with their fitness and conditioning playing a vital part they evened the score with a try of their own.

 With the score line seesawing between the teams Swans eventually scored three tries. However it was Lytchett who were victorious eventually running in four tries.
