Old Albanian’s U17 team trained at Allianz Park, the home of Premier Division rugby club Saracens.
With Woollams unavailable due to a junior rugby tournament, the U17s were given the chance to train at the newly-constructed stadium, which boasts a state-of-the-art artificial pitch.
The U17s have had a great start to the season; the A team is unbeaten, including a 17-10 win over Harpenden, and the B team won their opening game of the campaign.
Head coach Andy Graham said: “Whilst maintaining our five year unbeaten league record against Harpenden was great, we have maintained a strong depth of players and we are only one of two clubs in the county running two sides at this age group.
“Although the B team won their initial league fixture, we are still looking for some new players to give depth to the age group over the winter months.”
