Congratulations to the U16/17 players, who travelled to Wales last weekend to take part in the Osprey Challenge Rugby Festival. Sligo won all their pool games, beating Boyne RFC in their final game to win the trophy. Many thanks to those who organised the tour and to the coaches who braved the trip with the 40 players.
Sligo RFC hosted a visiting rugby team from Portland, Maine last week. Over 50 players and supporters were doing a tour of Ireland to celebrate their club’s 50th anniversary.
They played against a combined Development, Gulls and U20s team in Hamilton Park and the home team showed them no mercy, running out 20-12 victors over their guests.
The team and their travelling support were given a warm Irish welcome in the clubhouse afterwards, with entertainment by Dean Mahon. Thanks to Ross O’Boyle, Niall Gray and to all those who organised the visit.
Record numbers attended home matches last year and our Supporters’ Club is getting bigger, louder and more colourful. There is a supporters’ bus going to all away fixtures, contact Michael Storey 086 8198540 to book your place on The Magic Bus.
