DOM­I­NANT Amer­sham & Chiltern Minis won eight out of 12 com­pe­ti­tions at their own tour­na­ment on Sun­day.

As well as the host club, A and B sides were also sent by Bea­cons­field, Buck­ing­ham, Che­sham, Ful­le­ri­ans, Sara­cens and Tring, play­ing at all lev­els from U7 to U12.

The for­mat was a round robin, with each side play­ing each other once and be­ing awarded three points for a win and one for a draw.

The hosts were most dom­i­nant at U11 level, where both their A and B sides won all their games with­out con­ced­ing a sin­gle try to fin­ish as cham­pi­ons.

Almost as im­pres­sive were the A&C U12s, with both the A and B sides again win­ning all their games and each con­ced­ing only one try through­out the whole day.

There was a third A&C clean sweep at U8 level, with both the As and Bs win­ning all their games, while the U7 As and U9 As also fin­ished as cham­pi­ons.

At U10 level, A&C fin­ished as run­ners-up in both the A and B com­pe­ti­tions, to Che­sham and Buck­ing­ham re­spec­tively, while Buck­ing­ham also won the U9 Bs ti­tle, and Tring the U8 Bs ti­tle.

The pre­sen­ta­tions to the win­ning teams were made by Ben Lear, gen­eral sales man­ager at tour­na­ment spon­sors Syt­ner BMW High Wy­combe.

A&C U12s coach An­drew Rooke said: “We at A&C are ex­tremely grate­ful to the par­ents and or­gan­is­ers from the vis­it­ing clubs for mak­ing the whole day such an en­joy­able event from start to fin­ish, as well as our friends from Syt­ner BMW, who spon­sored the tour­na­ment and have agreed to do so for the next two years too.

“With­out their help and par­tic­i­pa­tion, we would not be able to run the minis tour­na­ment and make it the great suc­cess it is.”
