College Is Magnificent At Sevens

Ellesmere College are in seventh heaven after sweeping their rivals aside in both the Under 15 Adams' Grammar and King's School Worcester Sevens.

Ellesmere overcome Old Swinford Hospital 35-14 in the final to clinch glory in the Adam's Tournament with the perfect record. Earlier, Ellesmere came through a dramatic semi-final to beat Church Stretton School 27-0.

The youngsters also steamrolled their way through the group stages of the Worcester Sevens with wins against Wellington (52 - 7), King's School Worcester (37-14), Solihull School (35-5) before recording an impressive 35-14 final win against Loughborough Grammar School to record their second tournament win in a week.

Ellesmere College captain Tom Furnival commented: "We targeted these tournaments at the start of the sevens season and we knew with how well we've progressed as a sevens team that we could progress to at least the final. It's a great stepping stone for the boys."

Jon Morgan, Head Coach said "The team found their form and played some excellent sevens style rugby - they managed to calmly keep hold of the ball for long periods and score some tremendous tries. This is a great achievement for the team and I am sure they can only get better".
