Our North region has teamed up with the long running Hull Ionians RUFC, a rugby union club in the National I league, to sponsor its forthcoming Under 17s 7-a-side tournament.
The tournament, which will take place at Brantingham Park in Elloughton on Easter Sunday 27 March, will see teams from clubs in North East Lincolnshire and around Yorkshire take part alongside Hull Ionians’ Junior Colts.
Hull Ionians and former U17s manager, David Reid is behind the event. He said: “There is currently no club 7-a-side provision for this age group in Yorkshire and, with the format becoming an Olympic event for the first time in 2016, I decided to do something about it.
“This is the inaugural event of what we hope will become an annual tournament that will attract teams from all over the region.
“We are hugely grateful to Linden Homes North for their generous sponsorship, and hope that they will support us in building up the event in years to come.”
Sales director Steve Woomble said: “As a regional developer at the heart of the community, we are very happy to support this inaugural tournament for promising young players and everyone involved with this successful and committed club. We wish everyone taking part the very best of luck on the day.”
