The NLD U16 Sevens were held at Sleaford RFC on Sunday and the weather was certainly a challenge – credit to all of the teams and Sleaford who despite the wind and rain enjoyed a great day of rugby.
Newark (pictured) beat local rivals Nottingham Corsairs to take the Cup title home to Kelham Road and win all 5 of their matches. The two sides will meet again on 19th April at Market Rasen as they face each other in the NLD U16 Cup Final, a repeat of last year’s U15 final.
In the Plate competition two corners of NLD faced each other in the Final with Ashbourne beating Scunthorpe.
Hosts Sleaford kept the Shield as they overcame West Bridgford while the Bowl was an all Lincolnshire affair with Cleethorpes beating Boston in the final.
The Rugby Man Trophy went to Kesteven with Paviors finishing as Runners Up.
Thanks again to Sleaford for hosting the event and to all of the teams that took part.
