Teams from Year 7 and Year 10 represented The Regis School, Felpham Community College and Ormiston Six Villages Academy in matches on the club’s Hampshire Avenue pitches.

The afternoon was part of an RFU All Schools initiative which began three years at Bognor and still has three more years to run.

It’s all about getting young people playing rugby, keeping fit and learning the values and ethos of the sport.
