p style="text-align: justify;"span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: small;"The last three weeks has helped demonstrate to the lads just how far they have improved in one season, the benefit of team work and hard work at training. With some notable results; drawing with Old Coventrians, who were for a long time the side we benchmarked ourselves against, was definitely a highlight at Kenilworth and drawing with a very impressive Birmingham amp; Solihull side in Barnstable in anbsp; game we should/could have won was another the week after. But still any silverware had eluded the team during their mini careers writes John Warne./span/p

p style="text-align: justify;"span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: small;"And so to Sunday, the final weekend of the season and the Banbury festival. Banbury had proved themselves a quality outfit on our only other meeting, when they had demolished the team at our own festival. Our first match was against Banbury A which we went into with the right attitude, laying bodies on the line to keep Banbury out and even threatening their line. A nil all draw a fair reflection of the game and some serious cause for optimism. Game 2 was to be against Banbury B and as often happens ‘Street switched off and let a commendably well drilled B squad score four unanswered tries. Third game was against Chinnor and this time the real ‘Street stood up and again fired into the Chinnor team. Rucking well we were unlucky to be held to another nil all draw. nbsp;Final game against Wolverhampton saw the ‘Street boys turn their pressure into points and some determined running, aggressive rucking and full on defence enabled us to come away with a very well deserved win./span/p

p style="text-align: justify;"span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: small;"This left us to play off with Banbury A again for third place. The coaches asked the boys for one final effort of their mini careers and how they responded! Banbury started well and quickly went one try up with a great individual try from the Banbury scrum half. In years gone past that may have signalled the beginning of the end, now with their mental toughness improved along with their skills and knowledge of the game it was the catalyst for renewed effort from the Broadstreet Boys. Scoring three unanswered tries saw Broadstreet take a notable scalp and finish the day with the plate trophy - Our first piece of silverware in Mini Rugby./span/p

p style="text-align: justify;"span style="color: #008000; font-size: large;"strongspan style="font-family: helvetica;"Lads, I know I speak for all the coaches and parents when I say how proud of you we are. Some great effort and resolve shown by all. nbsp;Let’s keep this momentum up into Junior Rugby!/span/strong/span/p
