On Saturday May 6th, Medway RFC Minis brought their 2016/17 season to a close with their annual awards event in a Marquee at the Club. With over 200 players in the Minis section a busy afternoon was spent by the respective Coaches, Club Chairman and Minis Chairman presenting trophies to each member of the section, along with 6 individual awards in each age group. The event was accompanied by various slide shows and videos, plus a coaches serenade for our leaving u9 manager (it will not be released on iTunes!!).
We marked the age grade promotion of our U11 and U12 into the new Midi / Youth rugby category, by presenting them with Club ties, and those who have been playing since the U7 received formal Shirts. Two of our U11 girls were also presented with special mementoes, as they moved to our new youth girls team.
Our Minis have had a tremendous season training with various clubs around Kent, competing in local festivals and at Saracens. We have continued to welcome new players, with over a 10% increase in player numbers during the season; our U6’s have gone from 6 members last September to over 20….. we like to start them young, and get the Medway Red and Yellow in their blood!
