YOUNG rugby enthusiasts joined in at Royston Rugby Club's annual fun day at the Heath on Friday.

The event was an opportunity for children aged from three to 15 to try out rugby and, if they enjoyed it, to find out how and when to take the next step of joining the Royston club when the season begins on September 6.

The afternoon followed its familiar format of five 20-minute sessions interspersed with a five-minute drinks break and there were 50 children this year from a range of local schools.

County rugby development officer Kevin Green and club secretary Jamie Johnson entertained the youngest age group, coach Ross Caldwell and first team player Rob Turner took the next while the oldest were coached by senior Royston coach Godfrey Everett and Alex Parker.
