MILLWALL Rugby Club is offering its first ever ‘Rugby Fridays’ training programme free for young players over the summer holidays.

Every Friday, starting on July 31, the Isle of Dogs club will hold the sessions which are run by Rugby Football Union-qualified coaches and completely free of charge.

The club’s youth chairman Matt Shorrock said: “We’re very much aware that children need activities all year round, not just during the rugby season so Rugby Fridays is a way for us to start providing these opportunities.

“Through the support of Canary Wharf Group and Access Sport, we’ve been able to put together a full programme of activities, which includes a one-week rugby camp at the end of August, that we hope with help grow rugby within the whole of Tower Hamlets.”

The sessions will take place on July 31, August 7, 14 and 21 with morning sessions for eight to 12 year olds taking place from 9.30am to noon, and a later session from 1pm to 4pm for 13 to 17 year olds.

Anyone who signs up online before July 31 will receive a free MRFC mini rugby ball – to book a place on the course visit www.millwalllions.com
