Two of Huntingdon’s junior sides have celebrated success recently.

The club’s Under 15 squad won the Ron Hatch Trophy at a festival in Colchester.

They powered through the group stage in unbeaten style, beating Bishop’s Stortford, Sevenoaks, hosts Colchester and Ipswich.

That set up a semi-final showdown with Sudbury. The match actually ended in a 5-5 deadlock but Stags advanced by virtue of scoring the first try through Max Proietti.

That set up a showpiece clash against Hertford where Jason Graham scored the solitary try to earn a fine victory.
