On the 29th April 2018 Bath Rugby hosted their tenth Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup at Trowbridge RFC.
The under-11 and under-12 grassroots rugby festival is part of a series of nationwide events which provide aspiring young players the opportunity to play in a competitive event and meet professional players from Bath Rugby.
The events are designed to provide young players with a chance to play completive fixtures in a format that is appropriate for their ages and stage of development, all within the spirit of rugby’s core values of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship.
The young players of Olney RFC U12s came through as winners on the day and collected their prize of a trip to Twickenham for the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final. Joining them will be Salisbury RFC U11s who were randomly drawn from all of the teams playing in the U11 Festival, collecting their prize of a trip to the final courtesy of Land Rover.
Participating players at the festival also had the opportunity to meet Bath Rugby players Max Wright, Michael Van Vuuren, Levi Douglas and Jack Wilson who joined the tournament to award all teams their trophies.
“We attended the Bath Rugby Land Rover Cup because the year group above us said it was hands-down, the best event they attended last season. The event organisation was spot on. Thanks from all at Olney RFC”. Steve Grainger, U12s Olney RFC, Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup Winners 2018.
“Thank you so much for a fantastically organised and run competition. All the team thoroughly enjoyed themselves and got a lot out of a great day. All the organisers and refs were brilliant” Mike Batt, Colerne Panthers U12s.
