The U16 XV had an excellent win on Saturday 25th January, beating King Edward’s School, Birmingham 31-5. Pictured above are two of the five Oldham's Fifth Formers in the team.
A torrential rain and hail shower before kick-off made for heavy conditions for all teams at King Edward’s. The U15s lost a close encounter 7-14 and the U14s lost 0-32. The 1st XV also suffered a narrow defeat against a bigger more match-hardened pack - although the Shrewsbury endeavour was faultless and the score could very easily have gone the other way.
