Gloucester Wheelchair Rugby Club was in action last weekend in the first tournament of the Southern League Competition.

The Gloucester Rugby Team headed down to Five Rivers LC, Sailsbury and took part in the seven team competition against Brighton Buccaneers, Bournemouth Lions, Ospreys, Solent Sharks Red, Solent Sharks Black and Stoke Mandeville Maulers.

After the first tournament, Gloucester Wheelchair Rugby Club sit 4th in the league having played six games winning three of them against Solent Sharks Black, Bournemouth Lions and Brighton Buccaneers.

Gloucester Wheelchair Rugby Club is a team made up of Luke Wilson, Lewis Munday, Finn Lusty and Elizabeth-Reyan Wichard. Kelsey Jones, Team Manager, was really proud of the way they played.

“What a great day with some great wheelchair rugby talent on show! 

"I am incredibly proud of the team and the way they performed, even with some challenges thrown towards us. Every one of them did both themselves and the badge proud.

"We look forward to working hard in training over the next two weeks before Round 2 which will be held at Stoke Mandeville on February 19."

Coach/Player Luke Wilson, couldn't fault the team's efforts. 

“It was great to get back playing competitively again. We are a newly formed group with a lot of young talent so to win 3 out of 6 games was a positive start to the season. 

"I can't fault the effort that was put in from each individual. Hopefully we can keep improving with each tournament throughout the season."
