U18’s Tour Leceistershire
After a season of fundraising including the Whisky Night and Cocktail Night the u18’s headed south on their tour which included matches against Hinckley, who claim Robin Bennie as a former player, and Loughborough. In a busy weekend they also squeezed in a trip to Alton Towers.
The match against Hinckley was abandoned after 45 minutes due to injury with the score 29 – 21 in favour of the hosts. Their second game against Loughborough, playing in unseasonably hot weather finished with a victory for the tourists.
Many thanks to our hosts and those who helped ensure the Tour was a success
