Super Wednesday For Rugby In Banbridge

Super Wednesday For Rugby In Banbridge

There is a feast of rugby and rugby related activity in Banbridge this week with a visit from some Ulster players and two cracking games in store, so SCRUM on down!

Rugby fans in Banbridge will get more than their fill with two big matches and a visit from members of the Ulster Squad all taking place in the town on Wednesday 17th September.  Some of the Ulster players will be dropping into Shoefair Sports in the afternoon, and following that Banbridge Academy will face Ulster Schools to mark the opening of their new pitches. And then kicking off at 7.30pm, Banbridge will face a stern test as Ballymena visit Rifle Park in the Ulster League.

Banbridge Academy v Ulster Schools

Kick off 6pm

Banbridge Academy have recently had new pitches installed at Mount Misery and to mark the opening of the new facilities the school’s 1st XV will face Ulster Schools on Wednesday 17th September.

The match kicks off at 6pm, and supper will be provided for all afterwards.

The match will be of particular importance for Shandon Scott as he will be hoping once again to line out for Ulster, this time facing his school mates.

Banbridge v Ballymena

Kick off 7.30pm

Banbridge continue building towards the start of the AIB League with their fourth game in the Ulster League at home to Ballymena. Banbridge narrowly lost the corresponding fixture last season 14-20 but with many of the young players getting game team in the September fixtures, the emphasis will be on a good team performance rather than the result.
