A strong 12 man under 10 Squad travelled to the home of the Newcastle Falcons on 12th November to take part in an under 10’s Rugby festival.
Carlisle were drawn in a pool against Ponteland, Morpeth, Tynedale and Northern.
The Carlisle squad consisted of Charlie WALKER (captain) Nathaniel MOSSOP, Tom LEWIS, James BROWN, Elliot BEVINGTON, Harry HETHERINGTON, Marcus TIFFEN, Paul HARRISON, Triston DUNCAN, Edward CROUCHER, Thomas MAUGHAN and Euan FORLOW.
The first game against Ponteland was stopped shortly after half time because Carlisle scored the six tries that would stop a game early.
Scorers were Paul HARRISON with a hat trick, Charlie WALKER with two tries and Marcus TIFFEN scoring a try. Ponteland failed to score against a determined defence.
The scoreline certainly raised a few eyebrows. The second game saw Carlisle playing against Morpeth. This proved a more testing challenge but Carlisle cams out winners with 2 tries to nil.
Scorers were Euan FORLOW and Paul HARRISON. The third game in the group stages saw Carlisle continue with a victory over Tynedale with a score of three tries to nil. Carlisle’s scorers were Nathaniel MOSSOP, Paul HARRISON and Euan FORLOW.
The final game in the group saw Carlisle strong opposition from Northern and unfortunately Northern came out winners by three tries to two.
Carlisle’s scorers were Triston DUNCAN and Nathaniel MOSSOP. Carlilse day long efforts was rewarded with a place in the semi finals. This was played against Northern but again despite strong determination by Carlisle they lost two tries to one. Carlisle try scorer was Triston DUNCAN.
The entire squad were desperately disappointed not to have made the final which was played at the half time interval between Newcastle falcons Amblin Cup game again Lyon. The boys from Carlisle were rewarded after the Newcastle game when former Carlisle RFC player Joe GRAHAM came over to the boys and spent time chatting and signing autographs.
Despite the disappointment of not reaching the final Carlisle certainly enjoyed their day in the North East and their standard of play impressed the many spectators and coaches and spectators who watched all the games played.
