UYWRUFC’s first ever competitive seconds team ended their first season in BUCS on Wednesday and quite frankly, I couldn’t be happier with how the team has blossomed throughout the season. We started our campaign with a 44-0 win over Cumbria in the cup and ended our season with a 55-24 win over Leeds Trinity. Out of eight matches played, we have only lost two. For a newly developed team, this result is absolutely outstanding.
At the start of the season, a lot of our strongest players had never picked up a rugby ball before coming to York, if you see them play today you would never have guessed that. Every single individual who has put on a shirt for our 2nd XV has made me, Caitlin (vicey) and the club as a whole incredibly proud. For us to finish 2nd in our league and make it to the quarter finals of the cup is something beyond magical.
I would like to say thank you to everyone who has played for our 2nd XV, the club, Ian, our supporters and Caitlin for an amazing season. Our result would not have been what it is without your help. Let’s come back with that same winning mentality next season!
