It isn’t all work and no play at Aire Logic, and as part of our wider community engagement we are very proud to sponsor Wetherby RUFC Under 13s team. We have been their sponsors (and adoring fans) for over two years now, so were delighted that last weekend, they won the final of the Yorkshire Bowl.
After a tough start to the season, the team showed great courage and improvement as they won their first fixture of the bowl with the maximum score of 40-0 (the game stops once one team goes 8 tries ahead). Following this massive success, the team went from strength to strength with 45-5 win against Scarborough, followed by another runaway 40-0 victory against Middlesborough in the 3rd round.
Things got closer in the semi-final, but after a tense start, Wetherby pulled ahead in the second half to claim an impressive 40-20 win and secure their place in the final. Now undefeated since November, the Yorkshire Bowl was in sight!
In a nail-biting final match against the Old Brodleians, both teams gave it their all and it looked like it could go either way, but with fantastic skill, determination and teamwork, the Wetherby boys won a hard-earned 25-20 victory and took home the Yorkshire Bowl.
Massive congratulations to Wetherby RUFC, we can’t wait for the next season!
