Your News Chippenham Mini Rugby Festival

Chippenham Rugby Football Club held their annual Mini Festival at their Allington Field headquarters on Sunday.

Over one thousand players, officials, coaches, parents and siblings descended on the clubhouse on a cold, but sunny day for a long, hard days rugby.

The Chairman of Chippenhams Mini playing section, Nick Burroughs was very pleased with the way that the Festival had run and was quick to praise the players and everyone involved for the smooth running of the day. He said; The quality of rugby played today was of the highest standard and all the players were keen to get involved in their respective matches. But at the end of the day, it is all about fun and enjoy the day. If their team did well and won, that is a bonus.

Burroughs was also quick to acknowledge the hard work of club officials. He said; The staff in the kitchen did a magnificent job in providing food, drinks etc all day and without the help of volunteers to man the barbeque, there would have been some very hungry people walking around. They did a great job.

As with previous years, the Festival was sponsored by Sytner Mercedes-Benz. The Managing Director of Sytner Mecedes-Benz in Chippenham, Mike Fellows added his praise. He said; The Chippenham Mini Festival was a huge success this year with some fantastic rugby played across all the age groups. The games were played with great passion and demonstrated both skill and commitment from all the players. This is the fifth year that Sytner Mercedes-Benz has sponsored this prestigious event and we are proud to be involved in its success as the Festival attracts some of the top clubs in the region

Fellows went on; Through our connection with Bristol Rugby we invivted Joe El Abd to present the trophies and medals to the winners which added to the occasion. As a business we are keen to support the local community and use our relationship to help others.
