Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - SI­MON CARTER

THE King’s School’s rugby con­veyor belt is turn­ing over at full speed with the Ju­nior De­part­ment U11 team record­ing an un­beaten sea­son win­ning all 15 of their fix­tures.

In what is be­ing re­garded by the King’s rugby staff as one of the best pools of all round young tal­ent in re­cent years, King’s dis­man­tled their clos­est ri­vals with 50 points win­ning mar­gins against Manch­ester Gram­mar, Stock­port Gram­mar and Chea­dle Hulme.

Cap­tain and play­maker Ol­lie Davies con­trolled the side from fly half with his mer­cu­rial run­ning and han­dling skills set­ting the tone for a fluid nine man game.

The pow­er­house for­ward plat­form of Ben Chong, Ol­lie Jones, Billy Bridge­wa­ter, Noah Wol­sten­holme and Cal­lum Chop­ping con­stantly pro­vided top qual­ity ball for live wire scrum half Ol­lie Carter, with light­ning quick three quar­ters Zac Wright, Ed­ward Ro­den, Christian Tat­tum, James Hart­ley, and top scorer Billy Bir­kett find­ing the gaps.

King’s In­fants & Ju­nior De­part­ment Head of PE Joe Walker said: “The last un­beaten U11 Ju­nior side went on to be un­beaten at un­der 13 and 14 level. With strong play­ers join­ing at 11 plus from our sis­ter pri­mary schools across the area we ex­pect them to be­come a su­perb first XV and hope­fully this pool of tal­ent will re­alise their full po­ten­tial too.”

King’s In­fant and Ju­nior Di­vi­sion Rugby Coach Mike Wal­ton said: “It has been a plea­sure to coach these tal­ented young men through­out their time in the school.

“They have con­tin­u­ally strived to im­prove their per­for­mance, both in train­ing and dur­ing fix­tures, and we wish them ev­ery suc­cess as they make the tran­si­tion into Se­nior Rugby.”
