Match Report from: Coach Ross Johnstone
Annan U13 Boys took 15 players the short journey North to our friends in Moffat on Tuesday night for a transitional friendly game to support the upcoming P7s for season 2021 2022.
3 x 20 min sessions were planned on a lovely warm midge infested evening. Annan gave a player to Moffat to let us play a 14 a side game with 5 man uncontested scrums and lineouts.
From the kick off Annan were on the front foot and scored 3 tries to one in the first session, tries coming from Rohan Cother, Oban Nicholson and Aidan Tinning who also kicked 2 conversions.
The 2nd session started a bit different with Moffat not letting Annan get up a head of steam before tackling and there breakdown protection play was good. Annan found there feet again and scored 3 more tries from Mason Gibb, Rohan Cother and Ethan Mcdairmant with 2 conversions again from Aidan T.
The last session was agreed a 10 min session to finish off the game but this didnt stop Annan rampaging up the pitch for 3 more scores from Ben Richardson and the gazelle Rohan Cother with another 2 tries. 2 of these were converted bringing the final score to 57 10 with Moffat scoring a try with the last play of the game.
A big well done to all players and more so the P7s who adapted really well to a full size pitch and the heat. Plenty to work on when we return at the start of August.
Thanks to Moffat for hosting us, all parents, and supporters for travelling to Moffat. Julie S for the organising of players etc.
Have a good summer break and we will be ready to go again, hopefully with a full season of rugby.
Cheers From Ross, Jack, Ryan and Julie.
