North Berwick Rugby Club's under-15s fell just short in their bid for glory at a tournament in West Yorkshire at the weekend.

The county youngsters took on English opposition in a competition hosted by Sandal Rugby Club, Wakefield.

As well as the hosts, teams from Gravesend Rugby Club in Kent and Surrey's Old Cranleighans Rugby Club also took part.

The North Berwick boys ended with a record of two wins, two draws and one defeat to just miss out on top spot.

Coach Iain Macintosh said: "It was a successful tour and the boys - and the dads who accompanied them - had a great time.

"Although the lads finished runners-up to Gravesend, who were a physically bigger outfit, it was generally commented on that North Berwick had played the best rugby.

"Some injuries went against us but we punched above our weight and look forward to hopefully touring again in future. And thanks to Mike Hetherington at Morrison Personalised Wealth Management for sponsoring the boys' tops."

Despite the Covid pandemic, the under-15s have welcomed more boys to their ranks as the squad has increased in size from 22 to 30 this season.

"This has all been down to the lads enjoying their rugby and inviting along their mates," added Macintosh.

Three years ago, the same group won the Scarlets Invitational Rugby Festival in Wales.
