U11 Rugby season kicks off

Saturday saw Bradford Grammar School host ten local Rugby teams from across the region in their first Under 11 Invitational Festival of Rugby.

Kicking off the season, the School welcomed around 120 players from Rounhegians RFC (A and B), Yarnbury RUFC in Horsforth, Ilkley RUFC (A and B), Morley RUFC, Keighley RUFC, West Park Leeds RUFC and Bradford and Bingley Bees.

Sian Partridge, parent and committee member at West Park Leeds, said: “Today has been a great way to start off the season. The day has shown local rugby in a fantastic light and has been competitive, yet not overly-competitive, and a lot of fun. The day has run like clockwork and we have all really enjoyed it.”

Head of Rugby at Bradford Grammar School, John Oakes said: “It was brilliant to see so many local grassroots teams come together to enjoy what was a fantastic event. The day was not about winning but about participation, teamwork and, above all, enjoyment – and there were plenty of smiling faces and a real sense of community.”
