U16s: Tigers ?? - Dads ... a bit more

Sunday 23rd April 2017

Class of 2017 - Tupton Tigers U16s

All good things must come to the end and, sadly, as the season ended so did Andy Roberts’ tenure as coach to the Tigers U16s. After almost two years, in which the squad developed into one of the club’s most successful teams, Andy has completed his time at the University of Sheffield and is leaving to pursue his career as a teacher.

But enough of that ...

Sunday morning saw the Tupton/Tigers squad converge at Dore Moor for the, by now, almost popular Dads vs Lads touch rugby playoff.

I would love to say that the rugby was beautiful, I would love to say that the referee was impartial and I would love to know what the final score was. Suffice to say, aided by some extremely sympathetic decisions, the Dads secured a narrow win.

It is also the end, for now, of this group of players as a team. With many going up to Colts, the U16s are looking for new players. If you’re interested (or know someone who is) call the club on 0114 2360075.

So profound thanks to Andy and we wish you the very best for the future. To some of us, you will always be a hero at Dore Moor.
