After a few months of hard hitting practice against each other the U9’s took their hard hitting to the rest of Surrey participating in the Esher and Guilford Festivals, seeing them take on teams from Dorking, Farnham, Reigations, Guilford, Esther, Cobham, and Guildfordians. Every team in every festival showed great effort and determination, and of course the Chobham parents and fans made each outing feel like a home match!
In Cobham two of the Chobham teams finished undefeated and were awarded the best defensive team and also best offensive team; showing great effort and skill on both sides of the ball.
Best Offensive Team (5 – 0) Best Defensive Team (4 – 0 – 1)
In Guilford the festival format only allowed for three teams and Chobham put out three 12 member sides in each division. After a slow start the Chobham teams found their legs and competed at a very high level; however, the host side was too much for all comers and prevailed in the end. The Chobham spirit was evident as each side helped cheer on the next and once again the Chobham Faithful were there in mass! Great work by all the teams!
