BOSTON Rugby Club’s youngsters hosted counterparts from Stamford at the Boardsides on Sunday.
The under eights were narrowly defeated by the current Tri-Counties champions.
In what were two closely-contested matches, Stamford won 8-4 (home tries from Willis (three) and Henson) and 9-7 (Willis (five), Henson and Vickers).
The newly-assembled under sevens pulled out an astonishing performance.
For many it was there first competitive games, and they fought well before going down 7-4 and 7-6.
Boston U8s: Willis, Henson, Vickers, Turner, Nicholson, Young and O’Callaghan
Boston U7s: Hurley, Elms, Rooney, Douglass, Daft, Pearson, Richards, Ward and Dodsley.
