A huge well done to the 10 children who played in our Y5/6 tag rugby team and finished 2nd in the Stroud district at this year’s finals. After an undefeated run to the finals Gastrells lost their opening game of the finals 6-4 to Leonard Stanley, who were the eventual winners. Their second game saw a very close encounter against Avening which finished 4-4 and they rounded off the round robin tournament with a 5-3 victory against Callowell. As a result of finishing runners up Gastrells for the second year running earnt themselves a place at this year’s county finals at Hartpury college in April.
