Newark U16’s Lift Sevens Cup

March 26th, 2014 by

Newark U16’s successfully defended their NLD Sevens title at Sleaford RFC on Sunday 23rd March.  The side, who were decked out in some colourful kit and orange headbands were certainly noticeable as they conceded no points in all four of their comfortable pool match victories.  Coming up against old rivals Corsairs in the Semi Final meant that they had to dig deep but a 26-12 win was good enough to book their place in the final.  The final was a meeting with Derby A who were not strong enough for the side of the day and Newark prevailed in a convincing 17-5 win.

In the Plate final Market Rasen took on Paviors, sides that had come through respective Semi Finals against Scunthorpe and Keyworth strongly.  On the day it was Market Rasen who came out on top, beating the Nottinghamshire club by a comfortable 31 points to 5.

In the Shield Competition Boston who had entered their first NLD Sevens Tournament took the spoils with a strong 34-0 win over Mansfield Blues.

The second Mansfield team however ensured that some silverware would be making its way back to Eakring Road with a convincing win over Kesteven A in the Bowl Final.

The last trophy of the day was awarded in the Rugby Man Final as local team Lincoln took on Chesterfield Panthers.  It had been a hard fought day at the office for both sides but it was the Derbyshire team who took the trophy home, beating Lincoln 17 points to 0.

It was a day with some mixed weather conditions although certainly warmer than 12 months ago!  Congratulations to all of the teams who took part and best of luck to those who continue on in the NLD U16 Competition.
