With the First XV flying high with nine consecutive wins, it was great to see support from the Hopper’s youngsters last Saturday. The Under 13s hosted a touring side from Syston RFC in a curtain raiser, prior to the 99-0 win against Kirkby Lonsdale. The youngsters were not only supported by family but also by the First XV players.
A number of Hoppers Mini Junior graduates have contributed to the success of the First XV this season, and it was encouraging to see the next generation showcasing their skills immediately before the big match.
Charlie Jeffery-Stott and Shay Holden supported their older brothers Sam Stott and Harry Holden as they secured a convincing win against Kirkby Lonsdale, with both Stott brothers scoring in their respective games. Charlie was awarded man of the match at Under 13 level, with his older brother Sam proudly watching.
