Youngsters impressed against rivals from across London

Kilburn Cosmos under-nines had a day to remember after seeing off the challenge from several London rivals to win the Middlesex Festival.

The youngsters produced a string of impressive displays in their matches against well-established clubs from the London and Middlesex region.

Strong defending, great running lines and passing resulted in try after try, many of which came after multiple phases of possession.

Cosmos beat Hammersmith 8-5; downed Grasshoppers 7-6; overcame Barnes 10-5; defeated London Welsh 7-5; and were 7-5 victors against Wasps.

Every team member contributed well on the day, with stand-out performances from Reggie Birrel, Leo Pruessmann-Barry, Lamar Robinson, Finn O’Reilly and George Ruddle.

It was certainly a fine day out for all involved with the team and an indication that the future is bright for the club.

With the end of the current season fast drawing to a close, Cosmos will hope to continue to impress in the coming weeks.
