The younger players from Woodbridge Rugby Club's youth section - the minis - and their parents were out in force in glorious sunshine for their Mini Rugby Warrior Awards.
Their older club members, the youth squads, were competing at the Ipswich Road to Rio 7s Festival where the U16s won their group and the U15s won the plate.
As is traditional, this last Sunday of the season was a fun-filled morning of young Warriors and parents together running relay races with challenges along the way, tug-of-war competitions and touch rugby games.
Before retiring for the summer recess, all age groups celebrated player, coach and parent contributions during an awards ceremony - rewarding the achievements of the boy and girl players. Cups and medals were awarded for individual and team achievements.
Junior chairman Alex Brigginshaw paid tribute to the hard-working coaches and supportive parents.
He said: “We are now a big operation with so many boys and girls out each week and that only works smoothly and safely with huge commitment from all in our community helping out”.
The Woodbridge Junior Warriors played a strong part in propelling the club to one of its best seasons on record. The Colts were in three finals, winning the last, the Eastern Counties Cup, in an exciting match against West Norfolk.
This underpinned strong league positions for the men and women’s 1XVs, finishing seventh and third respectively.
The 2XV Saxons also won the Greene King IPA Eastern Counties Division 3 and the club’s Wheelchair Warriors displayed improved league performances in the Wheelchair Rugby South League.
