Students in Year 9 attended a Trust rugby tournament at Northampton Saints where they succeeded in winning three of their four games and became the Year 9 Trust Champions.
The teams spent the day at the ground where they toured the stadium and got to meet some of the Northampton Saints players, before spending the afternoon playing against Trust teams of Corby Business Academy, Kettering Science Academy, Corby Technical School and Thomas Clarkson Academy.
Brooke Weston won all of their matches and went into the final against Thomas Clarkson needing a win or a draw to win the entire tournament. They started the game with a two try lead, however conceded two tries towards the end of the game through fatigue, ending in a 10-10 draw crowning Brooke Weston the Trust champions.
P.E. Teacher Mr Matthew Clasper said ‘The team played so well and were absolutely outstanding throughout the day, their behaviour was a credit and it was a pleasure to take them. I think that they all gained a great deal from the experience of playing at a professional ground. It was also an opportunity for the teachers to put together a Trust rugby team of which I hope to see the majority of our players in because they played so well.’
