Yorkshire community clubs and schools are set to show their support for Yorkshire Carnegie this Sunday when the club take on London Welsh in the Final of the British and Irish Cup at Headingley Carnegie.
Over 600 children will be attending the game from Richmond House School, Fulneck, Bronte House and Iveson Primary and will be hoping to see Bryan Redpath’s side lift the trophy for the first time in their history.
There will also be a large representative from the county’s community clubs who will all play a role in the match day experience. The Under-9s from Selby and the Under-7s and Under-8s from Aireborough will be walking out with the teams as the player escorts and the Under-13s Girls side from Old Brodleians RUFC will be forming the Guard of honour as the players enter the field.
At half time there will be our popular mini games which will see teams from Aireborough, Cleckheaton, Selby, West Leeds and Morley compete against one another.
Speaking about the support, community manager Adam Blades said: “It is great to see so many clubs and schools getting behind the team for our biggest game of the season. The support we have received all season for our community activity at games has been superb and it’s always an experience the children enjoy and will remember forever.
“This Sunday is a massive occasion for the club and a chance to secure our first piece of silverware this season in front of our home fans. It would be great to have a big crowd at Headingley Carnegie cheering on the team and with all junior tickets free this is a great chance to have a family day out and cheer Carnegie on to victory!”
