Future looks bright for Old Coventrians.

OLD Coventrians Under-14s are celebrating a magnificent achievement after winning the final of the international tournament in Torquay that attracted teams from as far as New Zealand.

And they had to do it the hard way, losing two of their three fixtures on the first day but bouncing back to reel off six victories on the second.

The triumph was a reward for hours of special training conducted by Paul Donaldson, Dave Clark and Mark Jones and a sponsorship drive that raised more than PS3,500 to fund the trip. Their achievement has been recognised with nine players selected to represent Coventry & Warwickshire while two have been snapped up by Worcester's Elite Academy.

And the OCs are confident that they can maintain those standards after their Under-11s won a tournament in Brixham, reeling off 18 tries as they won six games out of six before clipping Ystrad Rhondda 15-0 in the final.
