Cup Winners King's in the Elite of UK Rugby Schools with best ever season

The Warwick Sevens sees the crème de la crème of UK schools travel to the Midlands for an of season sevens celebration.

King's sent four teams from the U13s up to the U16s, with both the Year 8 and Year 10 sides crowned Cup champions. The U14 and U16 sides also made impressive runs to the Cup Quarter Finals, to see King's win the ‘best overall school’ and Freemont Shield Winners.

Warwick Seven Winners 2023

Only four schools have ever lifted this trophy; Millfield, Sedbergh, the hosts, Warwick and King’s, who have now completed the double. 

This caps King's most successful season ever in their 93 years of rugby and sets up the visit to the world famous Rosslyn Park Sevens.

Success has been significant at all age levels. The U13s have remained unbeaten in all 13 matches. At King's own Myles Marshall Sevens tournament, they came out as U15, U13 and U12 Cup Winners, with the U14 squad named as Plate Winners. King’s will go to Rosslyn Park full of confidence and be ready for their tour of the South Wales rugby heartlands at Easter.

First VII Ruby at Oakham

The first XI followed up their second best XV-a-side season, winning 13 out of 15 and reaching the National Cup Quarter Finals, by adding the Cheshire 7s title to the County Cup XV tournament which they lifted back in November.

Superstar centre Toby Wilson has been invited to England U17 training camp;  Captain Number 8 Haydn Keogh has represented the North of England while fly-half Finlay Usher and scrum-half Harrison Milner have represented the National U18 Lambs and will tour South Africa in the summer. The First VII were also runners-up at Oakham 7s, having swept aside powerhouses Uppingham and Bedford School in addition to  going unbeaten in a tough group.

The U15 have had another magnificent season, also reaching the National Cup Quarter Finals after making the semi final the previous year. They won 12 out of 14 matches and also lifted the Warwick Sevens Cup.

King's Head of Rugby Giles Hetherington said: "This is the most successful season ever and the future looks incredibly bright for the teams in blue and white. Over the summer, the senior squads will tour New Zealand and Malaysia and next year the fixture card sees the most significant changes ever, as we look for sterner block opponents to help challenge the very best players that Cheshire, if not the North of England, has to offer."
