Stockport Grammar School’s rugby players have won the U16 Cheshire Cup bringing an outstanding season of challenging games to a fitting end.
The boys faced some talented schools during their campaign with a last-gasp drop goal sealing a dramatic comeback against Bridgewater High School and an outstanding performance against St Ambrose College.
On top of this victory, more than 20 of the school’s rugby players have been selected for teams and training groups at club and county level.
Head of rugby Hugo Corbett said: “It is an exceptional achievement for our U16 team to win the cup final and it is a testament to the training they’ve put in. I am so pleased for the boys that have been selected, it is a credit to all the hard work and enthusiasm that they have shown.”
