OUR rugby players were let down by St Felix School who conceded our Daily Mail Cup fixture citing lack of fit players. However, we did have two squads in the Suffolk Schools 10s at Stowmarket.

As well as having two teams in the competition, we also provided all the referees, timekeepers and scorers and substituted some injured players in other squads.

Both our teams managed to complete the day unbeaten, having won all their games against the other students. We took both first and second place in the tournament, but gave up one spot to Northgate. These two teams go through to the Eastern Counties 10s Tournament in November.

To complete the day, a team of girls from KEUS and County Upper who had been coached throughout the day by our coaches and players had an enjoyable game of touch rugby against a West Suffolk College Academy side.

The rugby lads have also been busy fundraising. Throughout October they will be raising money for the Radiotherapy Unit at Ipswich Hospital, selling specially designed rugby shirts, taking bucket collections at matches and earning sponsorship for points scored at the Felsted Rugby Festival.

Team Bury continue their good form. Their latest result was a 1-0 win at Godmanchester Rovers.

It was a match that will be quickly forgotten by those who witnessed it. In truth neither side really got going and, despite a fine playing surface, Team Bury's normally slick passing game did not materialise.

The one time it did, Andrew Nugent wove some magic down the left flank and Craig Nurse applied the finishing touch from close range. Another clean sheet for Team Bury should not be ignored and, again, Jed Winfield pleased the eye at left back.

That makes it five matches without defeat in all competitions and just two goals conceded in those five matches.

The girls' match was postponed due to county call-ups.
