A Team gun down oppostion
Royston Rugby Club touch tournament
ROYSTON Rugby Club held its first summer touch tournament on the Heath on Saturday.
A glorious summer’s day set the tone for what turned out to be a wonderful success. Sixteen teams entered into the tournament sporting a range of fancy dress from banana kits to vicars to retro disco outfits worn by the ladies team who won the award for best dressed.
There were two cups to be won, the top two teams in the group entered into the cup competition and the bottom two entered into the plate competition. With everyone’s eyes on the cup the group games were fiercely competed – especially by the U13s and U14s where one group was even decided by penalty kicks to separate second and third.

A barbecue and cheap drinks meant the tournament produced a great atmosphere and ensured everyone got on well. With the heat of the day beginning to take it’s toll on the players the knock-out stages became a survival of the fittest with the veterans suffering the most.
The plate competition was won by Kneesworth House, with captain Matthew Muirhead overcome with emotion. The cup competition was won by the ‘A Team’ entered by Hardcastle Burton LLP accountants. Captain Steve Williams collected the cup and celebrated by spraying champagne over his team-mates.
