Kesteven under-10s were among more than 150 players and 50 coaches from around Lincolnshire who descended on RAF College Cranwell for an activities weekend and mini rugby tournament.

Ten teams attended the event which began with a social gathering on the Friday evening. Saturday team-building races and games in the college pool were led by RAF PT instructors, after which an orienteering course was undertaken.

The children enjoyed a two-hour “escape and evasion” exercise run by 2503 Squadron Royal Auxiliary Air Force from RAF Waddington.

Winners of the Saturday activities were Market Rasen and Louth RFC.

After a tiring previous day, attention turned to rugby on Sunday for the annual minis tournament.

All the games were played at an extreme pace and with a wonderful spirit. Kesteven finished runners-up to Sleaford RFC after a 2-0 defeat in the final.

The weekend’s event raised approximately £4,000 for the RAF Benevolent Fund.
