New College complete historic clean sweep

11 December 2013

  • Four out of four for Redditch college
  • Worcestershire FE college rugby flourishing

New College from Redditch continued their impressive development when they won all four matches in a tournament for FE colleges in Worcestershire held at Bromsgrove RFC.

Chris Hargreaves, the RFU’s Community Rugby Coach for Worcestershire, has helped to introduce rugby to New College and the team has competed in three ten-a-side tournaments this season.

New College completed their first clean sweep by beating fellow newcomers Warwickshire College 12-7 in their opening match and they then went on to defeat Stourport HS 21-7, South Bromsgrove HS 17-0 and Droitwich HS 27-0.

The Worcestershire FE college tournaments are ten-a-side, which allows the teams to be easily transported to the venues in minibuses and are for players aged between 17 and 19 years old.
