Twickenham trip for players

Bridgnorth Rugby Club FC’s U11s travelled to Twickenham in May as guests of Land Rover for the Premiership Final between London Saracens and Exeter Chiefs. The team had been selected to attend following their performance at the Worcester Warriors festival in December, where teams were marked on how they exhibited the core values of rugby; teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline, and sportsmanship.

Mini and Junior secretary Nerys Arch reports, “The day got off to a great start as the team managed to grab a quick selfie with current England international Maro Itoje while waiting to get into the stadium!

“In the afternoon we joined the other teams to watch the final in glorious sunshine and took part in a parade around the pitch at halftime in front of over 75,000 supporters. The experience will stay with the team for a long time to come… and you never know, it may one of them running out to represent their country one day!”

If your son or daughter would like to get involved, visit bridgnorthrfc.co.uk or email percyandnerys@btconnect.com. The season starts again on Saturday 9 September.
