Chew Valley RFC U16’s completed a memorable season by going undefeated and winning two cups along the way.
Playing eighteen games over the season, Chew had to travel far and wide to find strong opposition and had some enjoyable trips to Chippenham, Royal Wootton Bassett, Longlevens and Taunton.
The season ended with back-to-back cup finals, starting with a comprehensive 42-7 win against local rivals, Keynsham in the Bristol Combination Cup.
Tries from Jacob Dufour-Battle, Ashton Churchill, Malakai Thompson, George Peters (2) and Jack Johnson, alongside twelve points from the boot of Zak Radforth saw Chew run out comfortable winners against a spirited Keynsham squad.
Their final ever match together as a squad was the Somerset Cup Final against Bath. Starting brightly, Chew took the lead through tries from Jacob Dufour-Battle and Zak Radforth, both converted by Max Culverhouse, before Bath fought back making it 14-7 just after half-time.
However, a brace of tries from James Stewart in the second half saw Chew finally winning 26-7.
Huge contributions were made by the whole squad throughout the season, and the players, coaches and parents will certainly enjoy looking back on such a successful season with immense pride.
