SUPPORTERS of Wooden Spoon can be found right across the globe! We are delighted that Riyadh Vipers Junior RFU in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia chose to raise funds for the children’s charity of rugby at their recent rugby festival.

Our congratulations go to all who took part in the recent Riyadh Vipers festival of rugby in support of Wooden Spoon and raised funds that will go towards helping children and young people with disabilities or facing disadvantage.

Although it was cold and dusty a great day was had by all with many of the players donning the distinctive Wooden Spoon socks.

The Midi’s, the largest group within the club, had four teams playing throughout the morning. The final group, the Mini’s, were broken down into four teams of mixed ages and all had an amazing tournament.

In addition, the club is holding an auction for a Rory Underwood shirt and raising funds for Wooden Spoon through the sale of branded merchandise.
