Trojans U16 Warriors enjoy fine win over at Havant
With the added confidence of having seen their team mates, the U16 Chiefs win the County title the previous week , Trojans U16 Warriors took to the road seeking to boost their own chances of winning their divisional title by putting in a strong performance against mighty Havant U16 on the first team pitch over at Hooks lane.
In the game of the season for the U16 Trojans Warriors, Trojans Warriors defended resolutely in a tight game against larger, more direct opponents. However through excellent execution of the game plan, involving some superb kicking and clever use of our pace out wide, Trojans sneaked a deserved victory away against strong prior match favourites Havant. Trojans Warriors led expertly by Sacha Eves (captain) and Rob McFarlane (pack leader) showed oodles of team work and great character.
A most enjoyable game to watch, played in a fantastic spirit with the Havant guys (players , coaches and parents alike) with whom the friendly rivalry goes back many, many years.
Havant 20, Trojans 21
Conv - Clayton (3)
Man of the match (excellently deserved) was Clayton Parker
