The Cheltenham College U14 As are celebrating an unbeaten season. They played 11, won 10 with only one draw. In the process this talented team amassed an incredible 448 points for and only conceding a mere 69. Josh Pimlott (3rd, S) was their top try scorer with 23, beating the previous record by one try - set by a certain Ollie Thorley (L6, BH) 3 years ago. Josh is involved with the Gloucester Academy, along with 4 others: Tom Stanton (3rd, H), Jordan Pemberton (3rd, H), Harrison Ottley-Wood (3rd, S) and Max Taylor-Baggs (3rd, S). The boys had a number of big 40 plus point wins, with the highlights being emphatic victories over Radley College, Clifton College, Rugby School and Kings College, Taunton.   

Charlie McKegney, the coach of the side, commented: “The boys worked incredibly hard. They always gave 100% in every training session and were determined to take their rugby to the next level, both individually and as a team. We did have some really good wins, but it was in the tight games where they showed real strength of character.”   

The season culminated in 10 of the U14’s starting for the U15’s in the NatWest Vase game against St Peters, Gloucester, where fly half Stanton and wingers Pimlott and Barnaby Harris (3rd, H) all scored in the 24-10 win.
