Natwest Vase Round 1
Fantastic start to the season for First XV
Natwest Vase Round 1 - King’s School Grantham 55-10 Carre’s Grammar School
The First XV have had a fantastic start to the season. Early season victories against Worksop College and Carre’s in the Natwest Vase suggest that big things are to come from this talented team. With a large number of players having already experienced First XV rugby last year, as well as an infusion of youth from last year’s Natwest Vase U15 quarter final team, there is considerable reason for optimism. This year, the First XV is kindly sponsored by Rieke Packaging. Logan Tweedie, Vice President Global IT at Rieke Packaging presented the new match jersey to 1st XV Captain Oscar Clink prior to the game against Carre’s Grammar School. Mr Tweedie commented “Rieke is proud to sponsor the King’s School 1st XV for the 2019/20 season to support the ongoing development of Rugby at the school. The boys looked great in their new kit and kicked the new season off with a strong performance that sets the bar high for the rest of the season and we wish them all the best for every game.” King’s have advanced to Round 3 of the Natwest Vase competition and will play at home on Wednesday 9th October with a 2.30pm kick off.
