The Codfathers’ rugby sevens team from Whitby attended the 4th Chester 7s tournament on Saturday to compete for the Brothers’ Cider Cup.

The competition was run on a league basis with the top team taking the trophy. Having won their first four games, they narrowly lost their final group match 12-15, but had amassed a superior points difference over their closest rivals to secure their first trophy of the season.

Codfathers captain, Anth Craig, said that after four attempts he was delighted to win the cup and praised his young side for their commitment and resilient defence.
