Midlands Trophy for Tag Team

SPS U11 Power to Midlands Tag Trophy

          A superb day of consistent rugby enabled Stafford Preparatory School’s tag rugby team to achieve victory in a regional competition in Warwickshire.

            The youngsters travelled to Rugby seeking to regain the trophy they had won for the first time in 2015 in the Independent Schools’ Association (ISA) under-11 Midlands championships.

In the group stage SPS won all matches earn their place in the final at Princethorpe College against the Old Vicarage from Derby.

            In a hard fought game, SPS always had the upper hand and ended up winning 11-6. The speed of Daisy Aspinall was a feature of all the games.

' The children played brilliantly, showing great skill and courage,' said sports coach,  Spencer Gunnell.
