Two Davenant Foundation School rugby teams reach county cup finals
Two Davenant Foundation School rugby teams are through to the final of the Essex County Cup.
Both the Year 8 (Under-13s) and Year 9 (Under-14s) teams went unbeaten in their five group matches - beating some of the top rugby schools in Essex - to reach the final at May and Baker Rugby Club in Dagenham on March 20.
1st team and Year 9 coach Marcus Cattell says the achievement of the boys shows just how well rugby has developed at Davenant in recent years.
â€œThe fact that we are now in two of the county finals just shows the strides we are making.
â€œThe other teams and schools now know us. We are becoming well known on the county circuit and our fixture card is getting stronger as a result.â€
