Akeley Wood School’s U14 rugby team went down to a narrow 10-7 loss in the final of the Buckinghamshire County Cup earlier this month.

The team travelled to Amersham and Chiltern Rugby Club – along with a second coach full of Year 9 supporters, and a convoy of cars – to face Sir William Borlase School from Marlow.

Despite the final score, Akeley Wood, cheered on by parents, staff and Year 9 cheerleaders, produced a spirited display as every player fought with aggression and skill in a closely-fought encounter.
