The ninth Woodbridge Rugby Club U7-U12 Rugby Festival was held at the Club’s grounds on Sunday 8 October with 1,250 players and supporters from across East Anglia. Now a regular fixture for local junior teams Woodbridge Rugby Club, home of the Woodbridge Warriors and Amazons senior men’s and women’s teams, made maximum use of its Bromeswell pitches as games continued from 10:30 until 3.30pm
Ideal rugby weather, cool and dry, helped those attending enjoy a full programme of matches, BBQ and fresh pizza. Generously sponsored by Woodbridge School – youth squads from as young as 6 years of age came from Chelmsford, Bury St Edmunds, North Walsham, Sudbury, Southwold, Ipswich, Colchester, Harwich & Dovercourt, Mersea, Felixstowe and Woodbridge to play under the RFU’s Age Grade Regulations.
I would like to thank our sponsors Woodbridge School and volunteers Alex Brigginshaw, Oliver Johnson, Roger Aston, Garry Sykes and all involved especially previous organisers Helen and Jon Wakeling who’s advice helped us get the Festival running so smoothly. I was approached by half a dozen Coaches from the other clubs to thank us for a fantastic Festival.
Watch out for details of next season’s event….
