AN impressive display from the Lurgan Tigers P5 squad saw them take the honours at the recent Ballymena Rugby Festival.

They won all of their games with some excellent play and recorded wins over CIYMS 7-1, Carrick 5-0, BHSFP 3-0, Ballymena 5-0, Ballymena All Blacks 5-1 and Belfast Harlequins 5-0.

On the back of their tournament success at Ballymena, the Lurgan Tigers were invited to play on Saturday at the Mini Rugby Festival at Banbridge Rugby Club.

An excellent morning of rugby followed, with a full squad of players taking part and receiving great support from parents, family and friends. With the help of a well earned slice of pizza and the chance to have their photos taken with Ulster rugby player Johann Muller, not forgetting the mascot Sparky everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Match 1: Lurgan Tigers 1 Dromore 1; Match 2: Lurgan Tigers 6 v Banbridge (2) 1; Match 3: Lurgan Tigers 1 v Ballynahinch Bucks 3; Match 4: Lurgan 3 v Ballynahinch Stags 1

A perfect way to finish a good season for the P5’s.

A big thanks to all the coaches for the training and encouragement throughout the season.

Team: Finn Rankin, Regan McKinley, Andrew Watters, Ethan Thompson, Taylor Kerr, Angus Cunningham, Jack Gardiner, Ethan Geddis, Seby Best, Matthew Daly, Michael Waite, Jack Boyce, Jamie Flanagan, Charlie Williamson.
