This weekend Scarborough RUFC will be hosting the Breakaway Tours Junior Festival.
This will be the second year we have run the festival and we have teams from Darlington Mowden Park, Paviors, Liverpool St Helens and Wanstead attending.
The under-13s, 14s and 15s will be kicking off the day with triangular tournaments starting at 10.30am with the under-16s playing a curtain raiser match for the 1st XV game against Old Brods at 12.15pm
The response to the festival has been mixed with clubs struggling to get organised in time for a festival so early on in a season, and with the huge success of the Minis tournament we will be looking for another time in the season to run the festival for the 2013-2014 year.
Scarborough are currently looking for old and new players to join the club’s Under-18s team.
We have a number of fixtures arranged for the remainder of the season so whether you played in the under-17s last year or just fancy playing, the under-18s are always happy to welcome new faces to the set-up.
The team will start training next Thursday night at 6pm at Scarborough Rugby Club and for more details please feel free to contact me by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Last Sunday Silver Royd played host to a Mini Rugby Festival with the visit of teams from Bridlington, Malton, Goole and Hull and more than 220 children aged between six and 12 played fixtures in an unexpected day of glorious sunshine.
Scarborough under-sevens enjoyed close encounters against their opponents from Malton and Goole.
Samuel Jenkinson was once again in fine try-scoring form with other tries coming from Tiernan Ingham, Harry Burgess and Lucas Brown.
The Scarborough under-eights remained unbeaten against Malton, Bridlington and Hull.
Edward Johnson and Max Bryon were both influential as tries were evenly distributed with teammates, Richard Sharp, Jamie Dennis, Oliver Edwards, Isaac Grunwell, Harvey Richardson and Louie France.
