This Bank Holiday Monday saw Guildford Under-18s celebrate the phenomenal achievement of
getting their hands on The National Colts Cup. Guildford’s future stars – under the stewardship of
Lions Sports Director and Coach, Andy Jones – beat York Under-18s in a thrilling final at the home of
the Bedford Blues.

The 31st Africa Cup of Nations – or to give it its catchier, 21st century sci-fi name AFCON 2017 – passed by over the past month without much in the way of fanfare. Of course, there were the obligatory biennial complaints from European managers at losing their star players midway through the season, but even these were muted in comparison to ..
