Are you a speedy winger, ferrety scrum half, dexterous back row or a big strapping prop forward? Or maybe you haven’t even played before and fancy a run out with your local rugby club?

Clitheroe Rugby Club’s Under 17 Junior Colts kick-off the new season, hosting Manchester side, Aldwinians at Littlemoor, on Sunday, September 1st.

Team managers Oliver McEntyre and Paul Blane are holding a registration and light training session tomorrow evening from 6-15 p.m. at Littlemoor.

The Junior Colts this season are operating in the North West Raging Bull Colts League and have been placed in a 10-team division, with local derbies against Burnley and Bolton.

So if you are 15-17 and interested in playing, you are welcome tomorrow, or, for more information, phone McEntyre on 07977441902 .

Senior training is well underway on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m., with the first fixture on August 31st – a Lancashire Bowl tie v Old Bedians RFC at Littlemoor.
