|U15 GIRLS RUGBY PLAY AT TWICKENHAM|
|U15 Girls Rugby team won the county stages, then the regional stages and went on to play in the national finals at Twickenham on Saturday 27th April.

|Angmering dominate local school rugby|
|The year 11 and 8 Rugby teams at both achieved a notable double winning both the district league and district tournaments. Year 11 remained unbeaten and managed to beat nearest opponents Steyning Grammar school by 50 points to win the league final and totally dominated the district tournament.
Year 8s biggest rivals were St.Andrew’s, Worthing whom they beat 27-17 in the league final and 14-10 in the tournament final in two very hard fought games.
Not to be outdone the year 7 team won their district league final 40-20 against Rydon Community College, 40-20 and reached the semi final of the county cup. The year 10 team also chipped in by claiming the runners up spot in the tournament. It is hoped that all this talent will benefit the new 6th form rugby academy which have enjoyed a successful first season under Coach Mr Fairburn and Mr Gooding.
|Year 10 Rounders success|
|The year 10 rounders squad have reached the district finals by winning their league convincingly against Littlehampton, Durrington, Steyning and Chatsmore. They are due to play on Tuesday 21st May in the finals at Durrington. The two top teams in each league will play to claim the title of district champions. Good luck! |
|Double win should ensure a place in the Y8 league final|
|Angmering v Shoreham Academy
Having watched our two opponents fight out a 14-14 draw, Angmering kicked off and immediately put Shoreham under pressure. Severall phases of good running and passing from the backs and excellent rucking from the forwards saw Callum MacDonald score in the right corner. Similar play saw Joe Scott cut back inside running a great line to split the Shoreham defence and score under the posts. Just before half time Connor Wheat showed a clean pair of heels passing defender after defender, as he swerved around the last defender he was tripped over giving the referee no choice but to award a penalty try to Angmering.
The second half followed the pattern of the first with the Angmering pack dominating scrums and the loose, allowing Sam Egan to unleash the backline. Our fourth try came from a poor clearance kick caught by Joe Scott who beat his man and fed Harrison Sims who side stepped two defenders to score and then convert. In fact Harrison finished with a 100% success rate with the boot converting the last try after a classic pick up from the back of the scrum saw No.8 Josh Wood storm over for the final score.
Final score: Angmering 35 Shoreham Academy 0
Angmering v The Littlehampton Academy
An easy win surely……… So thought the Angmering team until the TLA fly half picked up a lose ball and scampered past some ineffective tackling to give our opponents the lead. Fortunately this seemed to wake up Angmering who came to life when second row Owain Clarke smashed through several tackles to level the scores. He may not have the acceleration of a sports car but when he gets going it’s like being hit by a truck..
Angmering received the re start and several strong drives by the pack led to a flowing move down the backline finished well in the corner by Callum MacDonald. Another jinking break by Harrison Sims and a clever inside pass saw strong running flanker Dylan Keppler score under the posts. Great team play and relentless pressure saw Harrison Sims score another well worked try before Cameron Harmer caught the final restart and bounded down the wing most unlike a second row to finish the game with a final try. Harrson kicked 4 out of 5 kicks at goal.
Final score: Angmering 33 The Littlehampton Academy 7
