A team from a Market Harborough School has made histroy in winning the County Cup in four different age categories.

Welland Park Academy’s U16 rugby team made history when they won the Leicestershire Schools Rugby Football Union U16s County Cup, beating Hinckley Academy 79-24.

This meant that this particular team had now won the County Cup at U13, U14, U15 and now U16 making history as the first team to do this.

The game against Hinckley was played on April 19 at the new artificial pitch at Leicester Forest RFC.

They were not the only Welland Park Academy team playing that day. The U14 team were also in their final again against Hinckley Academy.

The team played well in very tough conditions and ran Hinckley close all game. Unfortunately they could not keep it going and it was Hinckley who came away with the trophy.
