U7s, 8s and 9s festival a success

Thursday 03 March 2022 Written by: Adam

We were delighted to welcome over 1,500 participants, parents, coaches, and spectators to Kingston Park last Saturday to take part in our Under-7s, 8s and 9s match-day festival.

We had a total of 45 local rugby clubs, with 101 teams from across Northumberland, Durham, Cumbria, the Scottish Borders and North Yorkshire showing off their skills on a beautiful sunny morning.

Each participant received a free ticket to the Newcastle Falcons V Bath game, creating a special atmosphere around the stadium.

*“It’s brilliant, the kids are so excited to be here” (Morpeth RFC Coach).*

*“Seeing everyone come together is what rugby is all about!” (Rockcliff RFC Coach).*

The festival has built excitement for the return of the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup festival on March 12; a nationwide festival for Under-11 and Under-12 teams.
