On Sunday 21st October, Cirencester RFC U13s travelled up the M5 in the early-morning fog to play Droitwich for the first time. As Droitwich were runners up in the 2011-12 Worcestershire county competition, the Cirencester boys were a little nervous of the challenge. The U13s had the honour of playing on Droitwich’s first team pitch and rose to the occasion.

TWO coachloads of Ciren Minis players and supporters, along with a fleet of cars, made the journey to Cleve RFC on Sunday – and returned with one prestigious county title.
We wanted to send you all the match report from Alan and I because we had a cracking day at Chippenham. Firstly Many thanks to Chippenham RFC for the way they organised the tournament. Not sure who managed the event but it was done with military precision and a cheerful smile! Could not fault it at all and they have a very nice facility.
Beaconsfield U17s vs Cirencester U17s Mar 9th 2014
Cirencester won 60-5
Cirencester easily won their Divisional Quarter Final of the National U17s Sheild against a weakened Beaconsfield team.
Olly Armitage opened the scoring after a few minutes with a well worked try, excellently converted by Jack Lister.
It wasn't long before Jamie Watts went over in the corner after selling one of his infamous dummies. Lister put in an even more impressive kick from the touchline to make it 14-0.
Cirencester U13s took to the road for their first away game of the season against a very hospitable Chippenham RFC. The Wiltshire side set out their stall early and with some big drives from their forwards and well-executed attacks from their backs, the Gloucestershire boys' defence was being stretched. From one such attack the ball was spun out wide and the Chippenham winger scampered down the line, beating several cover tackles to score under the posts and take a 7 point lead.
