The Sherrards Assassins rugby 7s team competed in the Bournemouth 7s festival over the Bank Holiday weekend and came out victorious.
The event is billed as the largest sporting and music festival in the world, with 350 teams competing in 28 tournaments across the sports of Rugby 7s, netball, hockey and dodgeball. Over 20,000 people pass through the doors over the weekend.
Sherrards Assassins competed in the Carlsberg Cup and swept through the first day of competition in comfortable style. Day 2 saw the team secure a win in the quarter finals, then go through a nerve jangling semi-final by overcoming a two point deficit in the dying seconds, and then achieve a wonderful victory in the final which was held in front of several thousand spectators in the main stadium. Celebrations continued long into the evening!
Sherrards have been sponsoring the Assassins since their inauguration, and over the last couple of years we have seen them go from strength to strength. The team aims be a real force in Rugby 7s in London and the South East.
Inaugural team member, Jack Haddock, comments: “We are so grateful to Sherrards for supporting the team, not just from a financial perspective, but also for their personal support of the team and events. We play again next weekend in Richmond and are particularly looking forward to competing once more in the Dubai 7s later in the year.”
