Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Sixteen teams from across the East of England battled it out in freezing conditions on Saturday morning for the right to lift the 2012/13 Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup for Under-12s and joining Olney's Under-11s on the road to Twickenham.

After several hours of action just two sides were left, with Banbury squaring off against Kettering. And after a competitive final Banbury emerged victorious by three tries to none.

All of the teams had the chance to meet Saints lock Christian Day during the morning, with Banbury and Kettering receiving their trophies and medals from wing Ken Pisi and scrum-half Ryan Glynn during the half-time interval of the Saints' Aviva Premiership Rugby clash with Bath.

In addition, the Land Rover Above and Beyond Award, which goes to a player who showed great determination and composure to overcome any obstacles or challenges that presented themselves, was given to Ellie Adcock.

The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup is a ground-breaking nationwide grassroots tournament for Under- 11s and Under-12s. Now in its fifth year, the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup aims to inspire youngsters in the sport to be like their rugby heroes and Land Rover has already enabled more than 30,000 children to take part over the last four years.
