Thanet Wanderers Under 8s’ team recently played in the East Kent Rugby Festival. Here is their review of the day.

Thanet Wanderers U8s entered two squads, each of 10 players, for the rescheduled East Kent Tournament held at Ashford RFC on the 25th March.

Both squads played a total of 4 games each, with matches against Ashford, Canterbury, Dover, Folkestone, Medway, Sittingbourne and Whitstable.

The Thanet Wanderers Lions managed a clean sweep including an especially hard fought contest against Canterbury.

The Thanet Wanderers Tigers had just one loss, again a tough close game against Canterbury, one draw and the rest of the matches were victories.

This gave a final tally for the overall statistics of the Thanet teams as played 10, won 8, drew 1 and lost 1, a very creditable performance for which all the players and coaches should be extremely proud.

The progress of the team has been excellent during the season and this has been bolstered by a steady influx of new players bringing the present squad to a healthy total of 22 players.
