The TringRugby U9s added more silverware to the club’s trophy cabinet after emerging victorious at the Aylesbury Festival.

A total of 12 teams from eight different clubs converged on Aylesbury Rugby Club for a fun-filled and highly competitive tournament.

TringRugby was represented with strong A and B teams on the day, and both held up the good name of the club in both spirit and performance.

The B team, after first coming a cropper against the A&Cs A team, recovered brilliantly with two strong performances to finish their pool in second place.

This was followed by a very spirited and committed display in their semi-final where they were finally stopped by a very strong Buckingham team, who subsequently went on to win the plate competition.

The A team topped their pool with wins against Buckingham and Leighton Buzzard, and a draw against the hosts, leading to a tough semi-final against an undefeated Beaconsfield A team.

With cutting attacks, the Tring As managed to overcome Beaconsfield 5-2, leading to a winner takes all final against A&C As.

The final proved to be a very thrilling and tense 12 minutes of rugby with both team tackling relentlessly until finally there was a single opportunity for Tring.

Well within the A&C half, Tring saw the opportunity to strike for the line and the team didn’t need asking twice.

Over they went for a very hard earned and exhausting 1-0 victory to lift the Festival Cup.

It was an excellent performance from both Tring squads and a great way to finish off the season.
