The future looks bright for the TringRugby U7 and U9 teams as they both finished second in their age groups at the Amersham and Chiltern Development Festival.

For the U7s, the Tring Lions took second place overall, while the Tring Cheetahs also put in a strong performance in tough, muddy conditions.

The Cheetahs had a great start, beating Old Albanians in the first match, but they were unlucky with their other results, losing by a point here and there.

The Lions, meanwhile, had a fantastic tournament, showing great enthusiasm and supporting each other well.

The team had a tight 8-7 victory against OAs in their first fixture,and that was followed by wins against Beaconsfield (9-4) and A&C (5-4).

A narrow 9-8 defeat against a strong Maidenhead side, who scored the winning try on the final whistle, did nothing to cloud a superb all round Tring performance.

The final game against Ruislip ended with Tring triumphantly scoring six tries in the second half to win 10-5.
