Wendens Ambo Rugby Club overcome a logistical headache to host successful first fixtures of 2022.

With building works at Carver Barracks over-running, the club had to run their Sunday morning sessions across two sites.

The U7 and U8 squads played their fixture at Jubilee Field in Clavering while the U9 and U11 teams were at the Recreation Ground in Newport.

A spokesman for club said: "Both venues proved an able substitute and matches were played in great spirit with some fantastic rugby from both the home squads and their local rivals from Saffron Walden.

"A special mention goes to the U7 squads who were playing their first ever match against another club.

"They took to the challenge with gusto and players, parents and coaches are all really looking forward to what these groups can do going forward."
