With such a strong history of Junior Development, it is quite a surprise to know that ‘Castle had not won the boys National under 16 title since 1982, and despite two subsequent defeats in the final (including the dramatic 16-14 fifth set defeat against Boswells in 2006) this was an age group title that had been away for too long! In the 2009 final ‘Castle were to take on Wessex, a team they had met at the Top 8s in March and beaten 15-13 in the deciding set of a truly nail-biting encounter, a match in which the teams actually finished level on points.
