Spring Cup 5th March 2019

Spring Cup – Tuesday 5th March

On Tusday 5th March Charles Read Academy travelled to Nottingham for the annual Spring Cup. The event attracts the best Hockey & Rugby players from across the trust, representing either one of the 10 secondary academies in the DRET Network. For the third consecutive year Charles Read Academy’s hockey squad put in a fantastic performance to reach the semi-finals, finishing 4th overall. For many of the U13 Hockey squad it was their first experience of the event where they showed significant improvement in their performance throughout the competition.

CRA were also delighted to be able to enter an U13 Rugby 7s squad who performed extremely well in their first competitive competition. A win in their first match against Charnwood College settled any nerves and the boys went from strength to strength in terms of application and performance throughout the competition, finishing 4th overall.

Well done to every single member of the squad who should be proud of their performance and the way they conducted themselves throughout the day.
