Having already been crowned Midlands Champions Nottingham Corsairs U17’s took on Caldy RFC yesterday in the National Semi Final of the U17’s Cup at Doncaster RFC.
With some of the U16’s who had previously been involved in the National U17’s Competition playing in their NLD U16 Cup Final at Market Rasen (which they also won), the squad were focussed on putting in a strong performance against the North Champions.
Corsairs showed their class and ran out convincing winners 34-10 booking their place in the National U17 Cup Final. Sevenoaks RFC, South East U17 Champions, won their National Semi Final against Chinnor in imperious fashion 24-0 to set up what is sure to be an enthralling encounter.
It is an enormous achievement for Nottingham Corsairs U17’s to have made it to the National Final which will see arguably the two best U17 sides in the country play off at the home of Sale Sharks, the AJ Bell Stadium in Manchester, on Sunday 3rd May.
We wish the team the very best of luck as they put forward their challenge to be crowned National U17 Cup Champions 2015.
