Yorkshire Regiment Presentation

The Yorkshire Regiment Trophy was introduced at the start of the 2012-13 season when all three Yorkshire sides were competing against each other in the Championship – Yorkshire Carnegie, Doncaster Knights and Rotherham Titans. It was approved by the RFU Championship Clubs Committee as a venture to aid the development of Rugby Union in the North of England, and the Yorkshire Regiment kindly collaborated with the clubs as a means of strengthening the Yorkshire connection.

The six meetings between the three sides each season not only earn vital league points but are also entered into a Yorkshire mini league with the top team being presented with the Yorkshire Regiment Trophy once all the games are completed.

We’re delighted to be presented with the trophy at the game tomorrow. Look out for the presentation taking place pre match tomorrow on the pitch.

What’s happening on Friday?
Tenor John Innes will be performing at the game on Friday. He’ll be singing some classics on the Headingley Carnegie pitch pre match and also at half time.

Junior fans can enjoy free face painting and balloon twisting in the Carnegie Café Bar pre match, and as always, our Carnegie mascot Terry the Yorkshire Terrier will be here meeting and greeting fans. Look out for the Spencer Properties Dance Team who will be performing at half time.

We’re welcoming students from schools across Yorkshire to the game tomorrow, to take part in our match day activities, including a pre match Guard of Honour, player escorts and half-time teams.

This week we welcome Moortown and Ireland Wood, and half time teams from Pontefract and Baildon. Look out for the School of the Month presentation taking place at half time too.

The Pitchero Star Kicker competition returns at half time, with James Morland from Knaresborough RUFC putting his skills to the test. James must take 5 kicks from the 22 yard line and convert as many balls as possible – in a bid to win £5000 for his Club! The score to beat is George Roberts from Littleborough who scored all 5 conversions in 31.23 seconds. Good luck James!
