Scarborough RUFC will be hosting a mad month of top action as the season finishes with a bang.

Things kick off this weekend when Silver Royd hosts a hefty number of junor sides from all over the country, who will be taking part in the Breakaway Tours Minis Festival.

The rugby will start at 10.30am on both Saturday and Sunday, though there will be plenty more going on for all the family, including mini tank rides and bouncy castles.

A veterans tournament is also poised to take place later in the month, before two more massive fixtures which will be hosted by the club’s top facilities.

On Sunday April 28 there will be a battle between England Colleges and the Irish Exiles. Then on Saturday May 18 Scarborough has been selected to host another Yorkshire county fixture.

This game will see Yorkshire taking on Durham, which will be the the showpiece event on the day, following on from a clash between a team and the Overseas All Stars.

Scarborough RUFC chief executive Graeme Young is eagerly anticipating a thrilling few weeks.

“It is a mad month for us, but it will be a great way to finish the season because there is something for everybody,” he said.

“The Breakaway Tours Minis Festival is a fantastic weekend for all the family. As well as the action on show, there is so much more for kids and adults to get up to over both days.

“On Saturday we also have our final home game of the season, the derby against York, so obviously there will be bragging rights up for grabs which usually results in a good game of rugby.

“Our first international game will be a great day for the club and then there is the Yorkshire and Durham game in May.

“These events are all great for the town, we hope that fans of sport will take a trip up to Silver Royd to take in what should be a great month of action.”
