Bishop's Stortford under-11s showed what they are made of by winning a series of games at Championship club Ampthill on Sunday.
With a big group of around 60 regulars in the age group, Stortford took 22 players to compete in matches on the Bedfordshire outfit's first-team pitch.
And they produced some outstanding rugby as their two teams tasted success against very strong opposition.
"The group, including the 12 coaches we have, have been together since the under-sixes and as a coaching unit we were so so proud of our players on Sunday," said coach and former first-team captain Stuart Haslam, whose son Toby is part of the squad. "Ampthill's hospitality was superb and the games were played in a fantastic spirit.
"These kids have had a tough few seasons with everything going on in the world and they deserve recognition for how they have progressed as a team, individually and also as young boys and girls."
The under-11s also triumphed at the Herts Floodlit Festival last month thanks to three wins and a draw.
"It's all about the team not the individuals, and they're really buying into that now," added Haslam.
