The Camelot U10s signed off the season with a flourish by picking up silverware at the Saracens Development Festival.

They beat Medway 3-1 in the final of the competition in a game played on the pitch at half-time of the Saracens v Worcester Aviva Premiership clash.

Often this season the U10s have been slow starting at festivals, but not this time around, winning the opening match 3-0 against Old Grammarians.

Next up was old foes, the Old Albanians, but they were no match for this Camelot side who came away with a comfortable 4-0 win.

Game three in the pool stages was the toughest, with Marlow twice taking the lead, but each time Camelot battled back, eventually winning the game 4-2. The result meant a draw in the final pool game against Aylesford Bulls would guarantee a semi-final spot.

That place in the last four was never in doubt, and a 5-1 win meant that Camelot qualified with four straight wins, 16 tries scored and just three conceded.

The semi-final was another bruising encounter with Marlow, a tight match that was won 2-1, earning a place in the final in front of the Saracens and Worcester supporters.

The final victory over Medway sealed a fantastic day’s rugby and brought a fitting close to the season.
