Pocklington School U15s Win Super 7s

On Saturday 8 March, the Pocklington U15 rugby sevens side entered the Hymers Super 7s tournament.

This very talented group of players did what no Pocklington team has done for 36 years and won the competition.

This was no easy undertaking given the calibre, heritage and quality of the opposition.

However, across six games, Pocklington scored 227 points, only conceding 50 with no losses.

There were notable victories against Durham (41-5), Barnard Castle (34-7) and Hymers (43-0).

After a tight semi-final victory over St Peter’s (14-12), the championship was secured with a comprehensive 45-19 win over a very good Woodhouse Grove team.

This was a remarkable success for Pocklington and it was all down to the fitness levels, aggressive defence and scalpel like precision in attack of the players.

The whole 12-man squad were superb, but captain Jimmy Quinney and Elliot Adamson were phenomenal.
