Yatton Under-15 players and their coach took on the challenge of caving in Burrington.

Following on from three successful summer fitness sessions, eight players from Yatton Under-15s, along with their coach, took on the challenge of caving down in Burrington.

Descending to a depth of around 100 feet and taking on a number of challenges including the Sisters, the Drainpipe and the Coffin Lid along the way, the team spent a hugely enjoyable two hours below ground.

A couple of the team were less keen to take on some of the tighter obstacles, but with the help and support of their mates they made it through and everyone successfully made it to the exit having completed all that was asked of them.

Yatton prides itself as a family club open to all so if you would like to be a part of it then you would be more than welcome.

The junior season starts September 2 at the club from 10am and the contact is Jason Clarke, 07896 590862 or email under15@yattonrfc.co.uk
