After a long journey south involving fallen trees on the rail line and horrendous flooding around Repton, we arrived at the hotel on Thursday evening, a little fatigued but glad to make it safely to Derbyshire. A pre-birthday treat for Sophie at Nando’s perked the girls up, and her chocolate birthday was a lovely way to finish the day off on a high.

Sophie’s birthday dawned bright and sunny, and after a cats chorus of “Happy Birthday” in pyjamas, the girls packed up and we headed to Repton. Clearly, the terrible flooding that had been reported in the news was all too evident, and we were feeling lucky that the event could even take place.

Our first match was against Taunton. We knew we had to start the tournament strongly, and we certainly did, winning a short corner after only 1 minute. Birthday girl Sophie struck the bull sweetly after an accurate injection from Izzy, and we scored our first goal of the tournament. It was a match full of short corners, with Sophie winning another soon after but no score came of it. The play swung back down to our defence and feet in our circle resulted in a defending corner which was sweetly saved by Caitlin. Izzy and Sophie linked well and won another corner but we failed to score. Flora was working hard up front and made some great runs in the D. The girls were working so hard , a goal was definitely on the horizon. Sophie made a great interception and had a left and right option; a lovely pass right to Saphira followed, and Saphira worked her magic, turned , shot at goal then Sophie swept it in. The game played at great pace and we did well to play strongly to the end.

Cargilfield 2 Taunton 0

Our next match was against Cheltenham who had one particularly strong player. Again, we started well and won a short corner. Sophie struck the bull hard and the goal keeper made a terrific save, clearing the ball wide. We quickly got the ball back in to play and Izzy had 2 strong reverse hits at goal, both which were saved. The play switched quickly and Clemmie made a fantastic tackle, staying strong and switching the play over, playing the ball back up front. Sophie’s tackling was good and she turned over play, passed to Flora who neatly swept the ball in to the back of the net. No sooner was the ball back in play, we won the ball again and Sophie passed to Saphira who turned and swept the ball towards goal and in true Saphira style, scored a cracking goal. We weren’t safe yet, and the opposition came back hard; Clemmie cleared a ball on the line, but good positioning from the Cheltenham girl saw a ball slipped to her and she slotted one past Caitlin. The clock was ticking down and we stayed composed and managed to play the ball away, and this was enough to see us win the match.

Cargilfield 2 Cheltenham 1

We knew our match against Foremarke would be a tough one and the girls needed to dig deep in this match to stay afloat. Foremarke made a couple of mistakes early in the match but we didn’t quite manage to capitalise on these. They then drove hard towards goal and Emma lost her footing (and her stick!) and they somehow managed to score, despite our best efforts to keep them out. A number of decisions simply did not go our way and it was both disappointing to see and frustrating for the girls. A certain short corner was missed along with some feet, and the girls did well to stay focused. Saphira was our star player in this match and she worked hard, finding space and winning short corners. We really picked up our game and I think the girls realised (albeit a little too late) that this was a game they could actually win. Izzy hit the outside of the side board with a cracking shot then quickly won us a short corner. Sadly, we ran out of time and despite looking the better team, lost the match.

Cargilfield 0 Foremarke 1

Our 4th pool match was against Langley and we moved across to the sand based pitch for this. It was an important game as their points were very similar to ours. Sophie demonstrated some great individual skills throughout the match, and played well, trying to find space and move the ball. She won numerous short corners but the Langley goal keeper kept them out and turned play around. Caitlin’s goal keeping skills were needed throughout the match and she made an important and big save to keep the game alive. Time was ticking away but we got the ball up high again and Izzy had a great reverse strike at goal but didn’t quite manage to score. We lost a corner in the last few minutes and Emma made a crucial clear which saw the match end as a draw.

Cargilfield 0 Langley 0

Our last pool match was against Lambrook on the same sand Astro. We were up for a win and Sophie broke through early on and had a shot at goal which just missed the goal. We piled on the pressure and Saphira, Laura and Flora all tried hard to get the ball wide when they were up front. We were rewarded for our pressure by a goal from Sophie after some great individual skill. Izzy also had a good run and played a fantastic ball to the post. Further pressure saw us win a short corner and Sophie scored a goal on her reverse, using her 3D skills. Soon after, not to be out beaten, Izzy had a great reverse strike high in the air, but unfortunately we didn’t score. Two short corners followed and after our no 1 went a little wrong, Sophie neatly pulled the ball right, brought it back on her strong side, and struck it hard for her hat trick.

Cargilfield 3 Lambrook 0

We finished second in the pool which meant we qualified for the main Cup quarter final. This match was against Dean Close who won the U12 finals last year. The match was fairly even at the start and Caitlin was forced to make a good save early on, after a bit of a scramble. Another save from Caitlin was needed quickly after, and we began to doubt ourselves and a little panic set in to the team. Dean Close broke through, and made a good pass through us, and scored in the back of the net. We gave away a couple of silly fouls for not being 5m and were punished with another goal. We did settle a bit after this but we lacked the physicality of the opposition and to be fair, Dean Close were the rightful winners of the game.

The final was won by Dean Close so we can take a lot of positives from the finals; the girls played their socks off all day, finished in the top 8 schools in the UK, lost to the eventual winners and everyone took their game to the next level. A great team achievement and both Cuan and myself are super proud of them all.

A massive thank you to all the supporters who travelled south to support us; it was great to have you all as part of the gang, and you all played an important role in our success.

Well done to the girls; feel proud of everything you have achieved and enjoy a good night’s sleep tonight .... I certainly will!!!

Playing Sedbergh is always the highlight of the season for both schools, and this year's double header was as hard fought and competitive as all the others! Playing SRU laws certainly helped us in some respects, but what pleased me most was our ball retention and the way in which we looked after it, went through phase after phase after phase, testing out the opposition defence, but although we threatened on a number of occasions, we just could not break down their outstanding defensive organisation.  We must have had 75% possession, which is an incredible statistic, but we lacked the variation in attack, and were perhaps a bit too one dimensional, running out of ideas which then, eventually, forced the mistake, and handed Sedbergh the ball. We played a bit too much down the middle and the ball never went wide enough where we do have lots of pace, but Sedbergh were up very fast to be fair to them which cut out our options; we kicked a few times in the 2nd half which was a good option, but a bit more variation and nous was required today!  It was two tries to nil at half time and we were right in the game with the 2nd Sedbergh try coming in the last play of the half, and although we began the 2nd half really well, up in their 22m and battering the try line, the score just would not come.  You have to credit some terrific defensive work from Sedbergh, and they defended really maturely, trusting each other in the tackle and not allowing us the freedom we have enjoyed against Scottish opposition. They had to attack from deep and some strong runners eventually found holes in our own defence, as tiredness crept in after a long week of rugby for this group of boys.  Take nothing away from them though, we kept on battling, kept on going back for more and we deserved a bit more than we got. 

As always, it was a pleasure to host our friends from Cumbria, and although we did not win, we certainly played with a huge amount of control, energy and spirit but that was enough on this occasion.  Both sides certainly knew they had been in a fantastic contest and Mr Harrison, from Fettes, enjoyed blowing the whistle on what was an excellent game of prep school rugby.

The boys played two short matches of 7-a-side outdoors on the astro against Merchiston in a home fixture. The team played with great heart and sense of fun and over the matches were victorious with the first match won by 4-2 and the second an exciting 2-2 draw. The quality of football improved as the afternoon went on and there were some positive passages of play when the ball was pinged around accurately from defence to attack.

In goal, Leo was brave, made some great saves and distributed the ball well from the back after a shaky start! Finn was very strong in defence and was ably partnered by Finlay, Jack and Austin. In midfield, Edward was skilled and tireless and was instrumental in linking the defence and attack. Mungo was tenacious, enjoyed his time on the wing and Oliver and Luca were busy upfront scoring some pleasing goals after silky moves. Quin was outstanding for the two matches and his skill level and pace of play made him easily the best player on show from both sides. Well done.

It was a pleasure to welcome Mowden to Cargilfield today. We decided to play full pitch for 20 minutes each way, with just 7-a-side. This clearly involves a lot of leg work however the girls stepped up to the challenge and utilised the additional space brilliantly. Cargifield looked strong from the start, winning a few short corners on the trot, one of which was converted. The girls passed beautifully and only chose to dribble when the space was available. Despite us changing positions, the girls maintained their structure and communicated well. Mowden really stepped up in the second half and put pressure on our defence however this was well managed by Cargilfield. Our final goal of the game was by far the best of the season, with a build up of at least 6 passes, which started all the way back in our defensive 25 and ended with a great strike from Poppy. This brought the score to 8-0 to finish. Alannah was awarded Player of the Match by Mowden for her outstanding play across the field.

The under 12 A squad took to the pitch on a chilly afternoon looking forward to an exciting tussle with George Watson’s School. Watson’s won the toss and chose to receive and then the game started at an incredible speed. Both teams competed well but Watson’s had the advantage in the early minutes and as a result scored the first two tries. Cargilfiled fought back due to some great work from forwards, Joshua, Hugo and Albie making the half time score 3 tries to 1 in Watson’s favour. In the second half the game became even more intense with no quarter given. Both teams passed the ball with great skill and tackled with even greater determination. Cargilfield matched the aggression of Watson’s due to some superb work by the forwards and some great support from Ollie, Luca and Murray in midfield and slowly crept back in to the game. Rory scored a crucial individual try to bring the scores level at 5-5 and then with just two minutes to go Glen broke through the defence and to the dismay of the Watson’s team surged over the line to claim the winning try. Well done to both teams on what was a very exciting, hard fought game.

The U12’s waited patiently today to get on the pitch for a 3pm start.  The play was very even all through the game and it was great to see the girls work so hard.  Mary Erskine were very unlucky not to score and our defence of Valentina, Cicely and Issy B were tested throughout the match; their skill and communication was great to see and they really were the hero’s today.  Poppy played well up front, hitting some great hard balls towards the MES keeper, and she was rewarded with a goal in the first half.  The goal settled us a bit and gave us a bit more confidence on the ball.  Our passing was good today and we looked to move the ball up the pitch well, playing it wide and with good power.  Josephine stood out in midfield, and made tackle after tackle, and it was also great to see her link so well with Matilda and Poppy up front.  Georgia snuck a goal in the second half to see us pull away to 2-0, and Matilda showed good stick skills before bringing the ball in and scoring our 3rd.  

Final Score: Cargilfield 3 Mary Erskine 0

The U11B girls had a fun match today against the Kilgraston girls.  Despite the cold, the girls did well and should be pleased with their performance.  We looked the stronger team from the start however the Kilgraston girls stuck in and they improved as the game went on.  We had some great work in front of goal from Annika and Esme, and both girls were rewarded with goals today.  Isabella kept the width and fired some great balls in.  The Kilgraston goal keeper made some great saves and really kept her team in the game.  Poor Bea was not really troubled at all during the match, but kept a big smile on her face and kept the team going.  

All in all, a good team effort, very much dominated by our attack.

Lost 6-3

What a cracking game of rugby! Both teams should be proud of a physical, fast-paced game today. The rucking and tackling were ferocious throughout an even contest. The Watsons boys scored some lovely tries using the spaces out wide and off-loading from the tackle area. In reply, the Cargilfield boys also scored some great tries coming from some excellent support play and clever angles of run. Perhaps a little weary from tour, I fully commend the boys for putting in another super performance.

Lost 7 tries to 6

On a rather cold Wednesday afternoon, Cargilfield were excited to play Fettes in a full contact match. I was pleased with the way that Cargilfield attacked as a team, supported each other, offloaded the ball and generally ran forward rather than sideways. However, there is still a way to go in defence, mainly tackling. We just need to practice our technique a little more in training and make sure we are leading with the shoulder rather than trying to hug the player.

Keep it up, boys!

After an impressive start to the half term our U9 squad headed up to the St Leonards tournament in great form and looking to repeat the success of the previous week. This week’s tournament was a round robin and allowed us to play everyone in games which came thick and fast.

It was therefore imperative to start quickly and the boys quickly started where they left off the previous week with a comprehensive six try win over Clifton Hall, playing a free flowing attacking brand of rugby. 

Next up was an unknown quantity in Lathallan School, going a score down quickly in the game. We got back into the game off the back of some stunning defence from Monty and Wilfred, leading to two break away tries from Tristan and Theo. Sadly we couldn’t hold on at the death and Lathallan scored to tie the game, which would prove a crucial score by the end of the tournament.

Strong performances against Loretto and St Leonards put us in a good position for remaining games against High School of Dundee and Fettes. Despite some fabulous rugby and fearless defence, we were beaten by both by a score, which opened the door for Lathallan to take home the trophy.

A lot of positives and improvement over the course of the tournament. With Theo being declared Player of the Day for his attacking threat and brilliant line speed in defence.
