Wrekin College


It has been another busy week for Wrekin sport. 
In rugby the First XV were in action on Wednesday and Saturday.  On Wednesday the side celebrated a 25-13 win in the Schools Cup, away at QEGS Ashbourne. The match saw a brilliant second half despite being down to 14 men for the majority of the match.

On Saturday, the side gained an impressive 15-0 win over Hereford Cathedral at home. The match saw a very strong defensive effort, combined with clinical attacking play which resulted in a well-deserved victory and continued the winning momentum since half-term.  

The Under 14s put up a spirited performance against Hereford Cathedral but with injuries and unavailability lost out 37-17.  The U15s also suffered from unavailability and lost ?out in their game

In Lancaster football the side faced William Brookes School in a brilliant cup tie. The game went to extra time and then penalties but Wrekin's young team just lost ?out 7-6.
In hockey the 1st XI dominated Bablake's side to win 4-0. The Under 14s fought hard against Shrewsbury School but went down 2-0.  The Lancaster teams travelled to St. George's to play Shrewsbury High School.  The Under 13s lost 5-2 but demonstrated a much-improved performance from earlier in the season. The Under 12s dominated their game winning 8-0.  On Saturday, both the Firsts and Seconds faced Hereford at home.  Close, competitive games saw the Firsts losing out 2-0 and the Seconds, 3-2.  A mixed Under15/Under 14 team travelled to Hereford and produced a 1-0 victory.
During the Summer term Ryan Lloyd continued to break Javelin records on a regular basis.  He has recently been awarded Telford Athletics Club 'Male Thrower of the Year'.  Could he please come forward to collect the shield from the HM.
On Thursday 10 Wrekin College pupils  represented Telford & Wrekin Langley in the Shropshire Homes School Games County Final held in Shrewsbury. The pupils ran extremely well.
