U14 – Marbella 35 Vs 0 Granada

The U14s ran in trys from Miguel Goizueta, Dennis Pflantz (2) & Federico Valles (2) with all the conversions taken by Miguel Goizueta before the end of the first half. With the official match ending once a team has reached a 30 point winning margin, the second half saw Marbella bring on the rest of their players to play a friendly against the visitors. In this session trys were scored by Tain Jarvis, Ike Irusta, Joshua King, Ignacio Noorbergen, Jose Luis Hinojosa and Axel Clark and meant everyone got to experience match play.

The U18 and U21 Andalucia squads were in La Cartuja, Sevilla this Sunday to play in their decider matches against Madrid to see if they were to go through to the Final of the Regional Championship of Spain or the 3rd/4th Play off. Sadly, although they were both the better teams on the day both teams lost in the dying seconds of their matches. The U18s lost when the Madrid winger intercepted a long pass to score a converted try and the U21s had a last gasp penalty awarded against them which was converted for victory.

Players from Marbella U18: Ryan Edwards, Oscar and Javier Garcia de la Peña, Henry and Sam Parry, Christian King, Marco Spinetti, Toby Francis and Jaime Ross

Player from Marbella U21: Daniel Camarero
