St Mary’s U16s become Bristol cup champions

St Mary's Old Boys RFC Under-16s celebrate their cup final win.

St Mary’s Old Boys U16 Team became Bristol Junior Combination cup champions on Sunday as they beat Wells 38-0 to lift the trophy in the stands of Clifton RFC.

A successful game of rugby saw them use the long and short ball to great effect, adding several tries in the second half against a stubborn Wells side who failed to score all game.

St Mary’s and Clifton had been tipped to meet in the final, but they clashed in the semi-final instead, giving Wells an easy run through.

At the end of the tournament it was the Green and Blacks who lifted the cup, with three different teams in attendance to witness their jubilation.

Confidence is high in the St Mary’s Under 16 team, who will be looking to continue their cup form in the league.

Martial arts: Martial Lifestyle

Martial Lifestyle end of year Fight Night at Meadowbrook Primary School.

Many young and old martial arts students took to the floor at Meadowbrook Primary School on Saturday night, taking part in Martial Lifestyle’s end of year fight night. Fighters from beginners to internationals were watched by a large crowd that filled the main hall.

Awards were handed out during the interval in the club’s end of year presentations. Many fighters, coaches, and even parents, who help out with things such as lost property, were honoured.

There was also a live song performed by one of the fighters during  the break before the adults took to the stage to astonish the crowd with some brutal blows.

An excellent way to end the season at a fantastic venue with a fantastic atmosphere, cheered on by Meadowbrook head teacher John Barr who enjoyed the night of entertainment.

A wonderful way to end a season for any sports club.

Martial Lifestyle runs classes at Meadowbrook Primary School every Tuesday. Their core programs include Lil Dragons (4-7yrs), Kids’ Kung Fu & Kickboxing (8-14yrs) and both Adult Kung Fu and Adult Kickboxing (15+yrs).
