May & Baker under-10s had an endure a winless tournament at the Upminster Festival weekend.

The Bakers youngsters stepped up a division and faced new challenges across the competition, but weren’t quite strong enough to handle their opponents, as they suffered five straight defeats.

They suffered a heavy 40-0 defeat to Upper Clapton to start the day, before running Woodford close in their second match and losing 30-15, with consolation tries coming from Landers and Finley Orchard.

Bakers then lost 30-0 to Thurrock in their third match of the day, before suffering a 15-0 loss to the hosts Upminster, then another 15-0 loss to round off the competition against Eton Manor.

Despite the Dagenham club only managing to score three tries at the festival against Woodford, head of youth rugby Jack Courtney said: “They didn’t manage a win but improved and became better and better throughout the day.”
