Hit the beach for Gloucester rugby festival

WOODEN Spoon Wiltshire is appealing for youth teams to sign up for a touch rugby event being held at the ever-popular Gloucester Rugby Beach Weekender at the end of August.

The children’s charity of rugby has teamed up with organisers Gloucester Rugby to offer five clubs from U9/U10 level and five from U11/U12 the chance to play in a series of matches on a beach pitch set up at Gloucester Quays on Saturday 26th August.

The younger players’ fixtures run from 10am to 12pm, with the U11/U12 age groups taking to the sand between 2pm and 4pm. Members of Gloucester Rugby Club will be on hand to meet the teams between 12pm and 2pm.

Teams taking part will be asked to make donations towards Wooden Spoon Wiltshire and squads should contain around 10 players.
