Hornets Under-15s look to build on their successful season with some challenging fixtures.
BUILT around a strong team spirit, Hornets Under-15s have enjoyed an extremely successful season in terms of silverware by being crowned Bristol Combination Cup winners and winning the Somerset County Cup.
Ryan Massey, Ben Reseigh, Conor Littlewood and Adam Francis all represented Somerset A team this term. No 8 Joe Smith was a deserving winner of players’ player of the year and prop Ben Reseigh was named player of the year in his first year of playing rugby.
Next season, Hornets have looked to test themselves further by taking fixtures with the Gloucestershire, Dorset and Wilts and Devon champions, not to mention the likes of London Wasps (Nov 23) and Cardiff Blues (Oct 2 and Mar 11).
However, Hornets can themselves boast nine academy players with Conor Littlewood, Adam Francis, Ryan Massey, Sam Balkham and Alex Perkins all with Bath Rugby, Ben Reseigh, Alex Colborne and Andrew Wheller are with Bristol Rugby and Josh Caulfield is at London Irish.
