HARRY AND ELIJAH PLAY FOR MOWDEN COLTS
A huge well done to Elijah Delaidriti. and Harry Parker who were selected to play for Mowden Park U18s rugby team against Percy Park. This is a fabulous achievement for the 15-year-old students, who are younger than other members of the team. Elijah played Full Back and Harry played Flanker. It was a very close match and they both played really well, especially as they haven’t trained with the Colts before. Elijah scored a couple of tries. The final score was 22-17 to Percy Park.
Harry started his rugby career at Wensleydale RFC’s U6 team and progressed through to U10s and then moved to Richmond for a couple of seasons. He went on to play for Mowden U12s where he now plays for the U16s team He has also played for Catterick Crusaders Rugby League since he was seven. He has played a centre position however he has settled in the flanker position for the last and current rugby union seasons.
Elijah has recently won North East Rugby League U16 Player of the Year and was also named Players’ Player at Newcastle Thunder – you can find out more about this here.
