2016 - 17 Season - The Under 15's

Pre season training will start in a few weeks time date to be notified.

We will have a very experienced team of 6 coaches with RFU Coaching qualifications. They will ensure all players of all abilities have a pleasurable rugby experience in a safe and controlled environment. There will be a number of players returning again this coming season but it would be great to see more new arrivals, both those who are encountering rugby for the first time or those who are looking to supplement some experience gained at school or other clubs. The emphasis is on enjoyment and team spirit through rugby. Winning is an enjoyable experience, but if you achieve pleasure from the game success often comes as a by-product.

After last seasons excellent season of junior rugby the coaches are looking for the squad to continue the fine form they displayed in the secong half of the season. In the Yorkshire Cup they were disappointed to have gone out to Huddersfield eventual winners and will be looking for a good run this season.

Review of 2015-16 Season - Under 14's

The Cats had a great start to the season winning all their games up December. In the 3rd round of the cup they had a tough draw away to Huddersfield which they lost 12-24. Several new players joined the squad throughout the season to boost the squad to 30 players. This gave the coaches problems having rotate players to give everyone a game. Only one games was played during January due to the flooding but it gave the coaches time to get the new players up to speed.

The second half of the season saw a the squad only lose two more games to West Park Leeds with a weakened squad. They entered the Darlington Festival and won all their games conceding just one try to win the festival.

Under 14's playing record
P 17, Won 14, Lost 3, D 0, F 614, A 242
Leading try scorer was Lewis Knopwood 24 tries, followed by Ollie Cash 23 tries
