With Bridlington struggling for numbers in mini and junior rugby this season, the club enlisted the support of Scarborough RUFC, for a fun-filled day at Dukes Park.

Scarborough came through in great numbers to have a training session with their Bridlington rivals and the days was a great success, with over a 100 children between the ages four and 10, training and competing in small-sided games.

The coaches from both clubs combined well to give different outlooks on training and teaching skills, while the children from both teams gained experience and a chance to train with other players.

The under 6s trained together, in fun small-sided tasks, while the under 7s through to under 9s competed in matches.

Although the Bridlington players lacked the experience of game play, each and every one of them thoroughly enjoyed themselves, some scoring tries, and others making great tackles or tags to reduce the scores.

Bridlington junior section organiser Andrew Kempton said: “We will be getting together with Scarborough again in the near future, this time going through to their ground.

“Let’s hope that the weather is as good as it was on Sunday, a glorious sunny day.”
