Bingley Grammar School


Year 10 Rugby Festival

Last Thursday our Year 10 Rugby team attended a Festival at Baildon Rugby Club playing teams from Ilkley and Parkside under the floodlights.

Mr Battye reports,

With only two other schools and limited numbers available attending last week's Rugby Tournament, our Year 10 team decided to make the most of it and came out all guns blazing!

A hard battle saw Ilkley take home the winnings this time around, despite admirable efforts from all involved.

Parkside was next, and two great individual back line attacks saw Jack Carr use his speed and Reece Smollen use his quick feet to dot down over the try to give Bingley a well-deserved lead. After a hard fought 2nd half, Parkside got the better of us and capitalized on our mistakes leading to a 3-2 loss at the end.

The boys fought hard, and gave it their all on a cold, wet evening at Baildon RUFC.

Well done to all involved - the main thing was we all had fun and enjoyed both matches!

Lastly a big thank you to Mr Murphy for driving the team to Baildon in the minibus.

Mr. Battye

Players involved;
Josh Newton (c), James Nelson, Reece Smollen, Kabillan Uthayachandran, Sam Nolson, Matthew Carroll, Jack Carr, Thomas Hudson, Robert Hehir, Will Fenwick and Matthew Brett.
