Last Week (November 6th) saw Uckfield U12s play their first ever league match against Shoreham.
With heavy rain forecast the conditions were not great, but both teams agreed to play on.
Uckfield started the game well and were 10-0 up in the first 5 minutes. As the first half progressed the team worked hard in both attack and defense with excellent tackling and super counter-rucking leading to a further two tries ending the half 20-5.
Wary of Shoreham coming back strong in the second half, the team continued to work hard taking two scrums against the head and running in a further five well-worked tries. As the game drew close to its conclusion Shoreham scored two tries in quick succession to end the game 45-15 to Uckfield.
The team have worked really hard in training over the last few weeks and it showed on the pitch. It was a jot to warch and we are already looking forward to our next game which is away next week in Jersey!
