Old Yardleians RFC, The Moss Goode15 aside tournament

August 15, 2015

Old Yardleians RFC will be holding their popular annual 15-a-side rugby tournament on 15 August 2015. Last years tournament was another great success with nine sides taking part with debutants Vipers from Leicestershire winning the main competition and fellow newcomers Willenhall winning the Plate competition. The format of a series of twenty minute games allows coaches to gives their first team & peripheral squad members plenty of rugby against varied levels of opposition.

 

Now in its 35th year the tournament was renamed in 2008 as The Moss Goode Memorial 15 a Side Tournament, this is in memory of the hard working Old Yardleian Moss Goode, who sadly passed away in 2008. Moss did sterling work for rugby in the area not only for Old Yardleians but in various roles for Greater Birmingham RFU.

 

This season sees Leicestershire side & last year’s tournament winners Vipers return to defend their title alongside East Midland neighbours & tournament regulars Ashby, plate winners Willenhall and Bridgnorth in what promises to be another cracking day of rugby at Tilehouse Lane. The competition kicks off at 1pm and spectators are most welcome. As in previous years a big thanks to The North Midlands Society of Referees who will be providing the match officials for the day.
