For the first time in Los Pelicanos Hermanos (The Pelican Brothers) history, we were able to put out two sides to a tournament.
In the "Open", a National Cup qualifier, the boys narrowly lost in the plate final, whilst in the "Social" we lost in the Cup Semi-Final.
A big thank you to Aiden Phillips-Cragg (Al. 2009-16), Lewis Edwards (Du. 2008-15) and Marcus Ramage (Ha. 2011-16), who all took on responsibility for the sides due to the coaches absence and helped the side to successful runs in both competitions.
The Final of the Plate was a tight affair, with LPH debutantes Toby Smith (Al. 2003-18) and Jay Parvin (Al. 2013-18) showing their quality on the field, whilst an injury to Josh Jones (Le. 2016-18) meant he was unable to play in the final.
White Horse winning 31-21 but an excellent showing from many of the OB boys who showed real spirit to battle a tough touring side. In the "Social" Henry Mason (Durnford, U6th) and Ben Hampel (Aldrich, U6th) showed their offloading and skill set as they came up against much bigger players on a small and narrow pitch.
Congratulations to the boys on running their own teams at Worthing.
Thank you to John Aiken (Al. 1976-81) for his continued support of the club.
