U9%2f10 Allianz Cup Champions Crowned
Sunday 23rd February saw the first of this seasons match day festival Champions Events take place at Allianz Park. The top performing teams from the U9/10 Allianz Cup qualifying stages last year arrived at the home of Saracens with the hope of becoming crowned Champions.
The Allianz Cup refers to teams of an “A” grade ability who are looking for a fun and social festival whilst maintaining a competitive standard of rugby. With rugby continuing to develop at the grassroots level, Saracens are able to provide an organised and structured competition; qualified and experienced referees as well as high quality facilities and a unique playing surface at Allianz Park.
After a fantastic morning of rugby and four highly competitive semi finals, the way was paved for the finals . At half time of the match between Saracens and Exeter, the finalists took to the field in front of a packed Allianz Park to battle to out for the title.
Saracens would like to thank all teams for taking part and congratulations to all the winners and finalists below:
Hemel Hempstead – 5 vs 2 – Sevenoaks
Old Albanian Lions – 1 vs 0 – Sevenoaks
Phil Chalmers, Saracen’s Community Match Day Manager, commented on the importance of the support that Allianz have provided with festivals this season. “Allianz have shown an overwhelming level of support to Saracens this season to make this possible and without their desire to grow and build this event, young players would be unable to experience one of the most professional festivals available for mini grassroots clubs. The Champions Events provide a showcase of talent with the opportunity for youngsters to play at Allianz Park. Hopefully this provides them with a taste of what it is like for their heroes of the game. We look forward to welcoming new clubs to these events next season as the competition continues to grow and challenge teams from across our Saracens community”.
“Another fantastic show on Sunday, really well organised and all our players and parents were inspired by the experience. A million thanks from us all “. – Sevenoaks RFC U9 Coach.
