Boston Rugby Club’s under 15s were runners-up in a sevens tournament in Derby.

Twenty teams from Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire were taking part, with Boston in a group with Chesterfield, Derby A, Kesteven B and Newark.

After beating Chesterfield 27-7, they lost by the same score to Derby.

But after a 48-0 defeat to Newark, a 26-0 success againt Kesteven was enough for the team to qualify for the semi-finals of the NLD Shield.

The young Blue and Whites put in a surging performance to defeat Nottingham Corsairs 26-17.

In the final they came up against a physically more imposing Scunthorpe side, going down 47-12.

The day ended with the team being presented with their runners-up trophies.

Tries came from James Andrews (three), Olli Balsom (six), Matt Bray, Ross Chambers (three), Ben Clawson, and conversions from Matt Bray (10) and Ross Chambers.

BOSTON: James Andrews, Olli Balsom, Matt Bray, Daniel Campbell, Ross Chambers, Ben Clawson, Harry Dean-Allen, Herbie Laidlaw, Luke Mcleod, Jack Power, Harry Stevens.
