Two old terringtonians Ollie McBeath and Saimoni Tobeyaweni have represented Yorkshire rugby U16s in a match against Lancashire in which Ollie played outside centre and Saimoni inside centre.
In the match against Lancashire which Saimoni captained, the team were 14-0 down at half time but came back to win the match 24-19.
Ollie and Saimoni left Terrington in 2016, Ollie to St Peter‚Äôs and Saimoni to Mount St Mary‚Äôs.
Since leaving Terrington, Ollie has played rugby for St Peter‚Äôs Ollie and continues to turn out for Malton & Norton alongside Old Terringtonians Harry Lister and Rory Watt.
Currently in the Fifth Form at St Peter‚Äôs, Ollie will be touring with the St Peter‚Äôs senior squad to South Africa in July.
As well as playing at county level, Ollie has been in the Yorkshire Carnegie U16 Academy squad since August 2018 and has played in matches against the Sale Sharks and Newcastle Falcons academy teams. The added spice to the latter game is that Old Terringtonian James Naylor is in the Falcons Academy!
Carnegie will be playing Northampton Saints soon and the season culminates with a festival involving all 12 premiership academies plus those of London Irish and Yorkshire Carnegie.
Of his Terrington days, Ollie says:
‚ÄėI loved my time there, except the occasions when I was in trouble. I made brilliant friends and we still laugh about some of the daft things we got up to.
‚ÄėAs well as the other St Peter‚Äôs Terringtonians, I am in regular contact with most of the others in my class and often see them in the holidays.
‚ÄėI‚Äôm proud of having played in an undefeated Terrington 1st XV and really enjoyed being coached by Mr Crockett. I also still repeat quotes by Mr Keens such as ‚Äúcalm yourself to zero‚ÄĚ.
I definitely left Terrington more confident than when I started there and maybe I will come back as a ‚Äėgappy‚Äô like my sister Hetty, though I‚Äôm not sure what Mr Mulryne would think about that!‚Äô
