A last minute try gave Eagles the first victory of the season. Not only did Brian Collins score a try but his run of successful kicks at goal - starting from last week - extended to fourteen. Es moved up two places in the league.
ELRFC MINIS; Guildfordians Festival - u11s update
6th October 2016
Guildfordians B festival 02/10/16
After a very shaky under 10 season where positive results were few and far between the coaches were not sure what to expect for the first festival of the new season. The sun was out at Stoke Park in Guildford and the boys were in very good spirits on arrival.
We played four matches against Worthing, Guildfordians, Camberley and Farnborough.
From the outset the players seemed up for the occasion and scored 2 very early tries which raised their spirits even higher and set the tone for the day.
All in all the team won all 4 matches scoring a mixture of runaway tries and some superbly worked team efforts. Their defense was dogged to say the least and every one of the opposing teams found it extremely hard to break through. Every player put in a complete shift throughout the day and worked hard for their team, so much so that the coaches couldn’t decide who to award the player of the tournament trophy to, so made the decision to give the accolade to the whole team.
Myself, the coaches and the parents were all extremely proud of the way the boys played and the determination and resilience they showed.

. . . on a high scoring draw against table-toppers Camberley. The magic boot of Brian Collins saved the day.
Junior season up and running.
20th September 2016
The Juniors have started their season, the U12s started off in style beating Cobham 30-5 running in 6 trys, a great start.
The U16s had a tougher match against the league favourites Warlingham losing 40-22, the score does not reflect the game with Eagles being dominant and running in 4 trys with just 15 players.
A good start all round and more to come.
