Situated between Norwich and the coast, the Broadland district of Norfolk covers around 200 square miles and is made up of 65 parishes.
Broadland is famous for its waterways which stretch for 200kms.
The Broads were formed by medieval peat diggings, which became shallow lakes joined by cuts and dykes to the rivers of the area including the Yare, the Bure, the Wensum and the Waveney.
Broadland U-15’s 31 v 15 Beccles U-15’s - 21st March 2004 (431 words)
Beccles were struggling against Broadlands' pace and power; this showed when Crane ran from his own try-line all the way down the touch line to score (unconverted): this left Beccles shocked.
Beccles had come with only twelve so Broadland made some subs and took back the two players they had lent them from the first half and gave them three new men: Coach Andy Hargreaves was grateful for the kindness of the players to go on the other team.
Broadland had only themselves to blame and had to make up for their mistakes.
