U8A & B Jnr Boys’ Rugby Festival at Kingswood School

The U8 A team played at Kingswood Snr School for their annual U8 A festival on Monday. Playing against four schools’, Heywood acquitted themselves extremely well winning 1, drawing 2 and losing 1 match. There was some excellent running with the ball from Luke and Henry whilst Jack came over to the A’s and also displayed some great agility setting up and scoring 3 tries.

U8A Player of the Festival: Luke

The U8 B team had a fine outing at the Bath Schools U8B rugby tournament. They managed 2 wins, 1 draw and a loss. The weather was very cold but the children managed to keep themselves with some fine running, passing and tagging. In the future, full focus would result in a better (and warmer) outcome.

There were some fine performances from Jack whose running is very strong and great all round play from Harry who scored the try of the day after a good run and pass from William P.

U8B Player of the Festival: Harry


U9A Jnr Boys’ Rugby Festival at Monkton Combe Prep School

The U9A boys’ rugby team took part in a tournament at Monkton Prep, playing two teams from The Paragon and one from Monkton. The U9's played some wonderful rugby as they beat both Paragon teams. There was a superb mix of free flowing rugby combined with a staunch defence. Both matches were notable for James's tackling and Tom’s excellent rugby. The match against Monkton was very hard fought with Heywood losing by a solitary try. Well done to all the boys on their effort, player of the match was awarded to James for his tackling.

U9A Player of the Festival: James


U10 Snr Boys Rugby Festival at Corsham RFC

The U10A squad had a great day winning 2 games against Paragon and Warminster. In a very tight affair against Westonbirt they managed a good draw. A stand out feature of play was the support everyone gave. There was rarely a time that a runner did not have a supporting team member.

Player of the Festival: Max


U11 Snr Boys Rugby Festival at Corsham RFC

On Wednesday Heywood U11 played at their home venue of Corsham RFC and produced three excellent displays of rugby. The first game was against a particularly strong Kingswood side and Heywood valiantly battled to a 3-1 defeat. The other two matches, against Paragon and Warminster were more successful affairs resulting in two hard fought victories. The games were notable for William’s superb kicking game and the determination in the tackle from all members of the team. Player of the match goes to Guy who represented an age category above his own and produced a performance which looked as though it belonged at that level.


U10  U11 Snr Girls Hockey v Springmead School

On Wednesday 15th November 2017, Year 5 & 6 went to Springmead. For Team 1 it was 2-1 so it was very close but sadly we lost. The player of the match was Lottie for getting into space. We were playing Quick Stick Hockey which is slightly different from normal hockey and she was tackling the opponents very well and was keeping strong passes even though we were on grass. Well done to everyone for a great match and for fantastic play!


 On Wednesday 15th November. Year 5 and 6 went to Springmead Prep School. Team 2 played Springmead 1 first. It was a successful game with the score being 1-0 to us by a penalty. Our second game we upped our game the last score was 2-0 to us. My player of the match is Darcey because her dribbling was exceptional and even though she was on grass she manage to keep her passes strong. Well done to everyone.


Player of the Festival: Lottie

 Well done to all of the players for another successful week of sport.
