Kenilworth enjoy a glorious day in the 2014 Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup
Each top-flight English Premiership Rugby Club has hosted an age-group festival, in association with Land Rover, with the winners landing a spot in the 'Parade of Champions' during half-time of the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final. Worcester Warriors welcomed U11 teams from across the county to Dudley on Sunday morning and, despite the blustery conditions, the youngsters put on a superb display.
With Worcester hooker Ed Shervington watching on from the sidelines - and handing out trophies to the champions - Kenilworth managed to fend off competition and claim their place at Twickenham which left under-11s coach Joe Barry ecstatic.
"It's absolutely fantastic that the boys are going to Twickenham," he said.
"We played so well and it's a real credit to the lads and the team.
"I think it's a fantastic experience because we're in Warwickshire and we play against a lot of the same teams year after year and this gives us the opportunity to play against teams from further afield.
The event is great day out for the kids and they enjoy it, it's the main thing from the day.
"The experience of the day is the most important thing for us ultimately."
Now in its sixth year, the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup is the first national grassroots tournament run in conjunction with all 12 top-flight clubs and showcases some of the country's young players.
And Shervington was blown away by the standard on show and amount of players at Dudley and thinks that one or two of the players could one day be plying their trade in the Aviva Premiership Rugby.
"The amount of kids that are here is outstanding and the talent that is on show is incredible," he said.
"It's a really impressive set-up and it's nice to come here and support the event.
"Anything we can do for these young ones to inspire them to go further is what we need in this sport.
"The more kids we get playing in these tournaments the better it is for rugby and we want to do anything we can to help as players.
"You can see the passion for the sport and, while it's not a very nice day, there's hundreds and hundreds out here so it's definitely going in the right direction."
Land Rover supports grassroots rugby and provides the opportunity for 7,000 youngsters to take part in the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup
