More than 250 rugby players turned out to support Horsham RUFC’s sixth annual touch tournament in aid of sporting charity Wooden Spoon on Saturday.

Two seperate tournaments were held, an Olympic themed international for the minis and juniors, which was won by USA, with a 16-team senior tournament - where fancy dress was the order of the day.

The Horsham Colts who played under the name of ‘Usain Colts’, in what was their first ever appearance, stormed the league stages, quarters and semi finals to go up against the semi-professional Wooden Spoon team who were captained by Liam Yeates, one of Horsham’s first XV star players.

Before the final, Tom Wright’s Touch My Torch team wowed the crowds by screaming through to the Plate Final, but were convincingly beaten by Rob Plinston’s canny Old Hoys.

In the main final, the young Usain Colts squad were Liam’s Wooden Spoon team who scored some brilliant tries.

More than £200 was raised for Wooden Spoon, which supports disadvantaged children, and the charity’s chairman Bob Rogers handed out prizes.
