The Rams under 15s will have to settle for one cup this season having lost to Barnes Eagles in the final of the Surrey County Under 15 Cup.

While disappointing it is still a great achievement to get to the final and the boys can be proud of themselves, writes Paul Smith.

Barnes Eagles raced ahead early on in the game and it left a great deal to do. The opponents seemed physically bigger than the Young Rams team despite being from the same age group and they used that physicality to great effect.

Although they continued to battle and came to terms with their opponents the damage had already been done and they lost 2-6. Michele Maccari and Inza Dosso were the scorers and it was Maccari who was named the Rams man of the match.

Although time is short they are still chasing the league after their rivals, Balham Blazers Colts, dropped points.
