U9 Demonstrate Development Success!


After a well deserved Christmas and New Year, the Alan Day Volkswagen Development Cup returned to Allianz Park on Saturday 18th January.

29 under 9 teams from across Hertfordshire, Essex, Kent and even Brussels arrived in the early hours of the morning at the home of Saracens to compete for a place in the coveted Champions Event taking place in May. Under the flood lights of Allianz Park, spectators and parents were provided with a fantastic display of fast flowing rugby as well as some hard hitting defense.

Congratulations to all the below teams who qualified in the Alan Day Volkswagen Development  festival.
