The first competitive match of the newly formed Fenland Barbarians under 13s saw a 37-22 win against a spirited Ely team at Harecroft Road, Wisbech, on Sunday enjoyed by some 60 supporters.

Wisbech and Spalding U13s have joined playing and coaching forces this year and will compete in the Notts, Derby and Lincolnshire competition while fulfilling a full local fixture list.

Tries: Luke Green, Finlay Wilcox, Tommy Sayer and David Betts with Ben Foracre converting; second half: Betts, MoM Theo Hoyle-Simpson and Keilin Spurdens.

Alex Wilcox, head coach, said: “I was really impressed with how the lads from the two teams have come together so quickly.”
