Henry Moore awarded David Bown Rugby Trophy

A damp and soggy start welcomed the Year 3 and 4 Tag-Rugby attendees to the Harlow Rugby Club. Although a few teams had dropped out before the Friday start, the 16 teams were organised into the 4 groups, and within minutes of the first whistle the pitches were filled with children running, passing and tagging their way to success. The improvement throughout the 90-minute festival was clear for many schools; those with previous teaching in school were able to model the rules and those with little prior experience soon picked up on the rules and plays. 

David Stacey, School Sports Partnership Manager and Luke Hammond, School Games Organiser for Harlow, gave thanks to Gill Pardoe and Sam Hammond for umpiring and encouraging the players throughout the festival. David gave a fitting tribute to the late David Bown, Head Teacher of Saint Nicholas School who’s life was tragically cut short in a road traffic accident in 2020. Mr. Stacey asked the all the 16 teams and staff for 3 cheers to honour David Bown as Francis Brown from Saint Nicholas was on hand to present Henry Moore with a Spirit of Rugby trophy adorned with his name.

Teams who participated: Henry Moore x 5, Tanys Dell, Nazeing x 2, Cooks Spinney x 2, Milwards, Saint Nicholas and Church Langley x 3
