Back in October, we donated £350 to Roundhegians RFC to buy new rugby balls to launch their season. After a successful season, we continued our sponsorship with a £500 donation towards some well-deserved medals and awards for the mini and junior sporting stars!
We caught up with Stafford Smart the chairman of the club, who told us a little bit more about the success of the season and the event.
‘At the end of their last session of the season on 28th April, players from Roundhegians Rugby Football Club’s under 6s, under 7s and under 8s squads were delighted to be presented with individual plaques by staff from Manning Stainton’s Oakwood Office.’
The U7s Team Manager Andy Revel commented: “Our young players have thoroughly enjoyed their Rugby experience this year. Having awards presented by a local business that shows an interest in community activities makes for a special and memorable occasion for them. We really appreciate the support we get from our continuing relationship with Manning Stainton.”
Players from the under 9s, under 10s and under 11s teams had been given their awards the day before because they were involved in a festival which four other clubs also attended. The under 12s were given their plaques the same weekend but while they were on tour to Chester.’
The Roundhegians are a huge part of the Roundhay community, with the minis team starting from as young as 6 it’s the perfect environment for children to burn some energy, learn new skills and makes some great friends.
