Thurrock T-Chicks hosted Aylesford Under 15 girls on Sunday afternoon with their biggest crowd so far. Aylesford along with London Irish are two of the best teams in the country and showed their class at Oakfield on Sunday. The game started with a number of quick tries from Aylesford which continued through the game.
Hard work by Jessica Mead and Megan Wilson stopped a number of breakaway tries just before the line but excellent support play from Aylesford allowed them to get more points.
Captain Emily Gerret Morgan and Jamie Love worked the hardest throughout motivating the team. The T-Chicks have a number of easier games left to play against newly formed teams along with maybe the toughest yet, London Irish away.

The girls are still loving their first year of rugby and are travelling from William Edwards, Gable Hall and Gateway to get to them. If any girl aged 12-18 is interested in joining then please contact Mercedes on 01375374877 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
