A fantastic few months for Royston Rugby Club got underway at the weekend with a touch rugby tournament on the Heath on Saturday and a volunteer driven maintenance day being carried out on the Sunday as part of the NatWest Rugby Force weekend.
Twenty teams gathered from near and far to play for the Heath Cup, won by Northampton COYS with the trophy being presented by Toby from the Heath Bar who supported the event.
Royston in Blue also kindly contributed to the event by donating water, and Glazed Creations created some marvellous trophies.
Getting the tournament underway Sir Oliver Heald MP said: “This is an exciting time for Royston Rugby Club, with the news that 2003 World Cup winner, and Sky Sports pundit, Will Greenwood has joined the club to help with their development.
“Together with over 350 children involved with the club, a newly established women’s team, a new seniors coach and touch rugby at Royston thriving, tournaments like today show that rugby is truly for all.”
