The second Midland Sevens tournament will take place at Dubarry Park in Athlone this Saturday (August 11), starting at 11am.
Alex Hayman is again the event director with assistance this year from Ray Fagan and entries have been invited from junior and Under-21 teams as well as senior clubs this term.
Panels are limited to a maximum of 12 players and the entry fee is a very agreeable €;120 per team, which includes free BBQ for each player!
Food and beverages will, of course, be available to supporters and others throughout the day at The Bounty.
Host club Buccaneers are optimistic about building on last year’s inaugural Midland Sevens, and Alex believes that this event provides an ideal pre-season opener for clubs as it gives the mentors a chance to gauge their players’ fitness and skills levels whilst also encouraging bonding before the ‘real’ action kicks off very shortly.
The tournament gives a good mix of competitive rugby as well as social interaction and increased numbers are anticipated on Saturday.
Entries can be made/confirmed by contacting Buccaneers administrator Geraldine at 0861732711 or emailing email@example.com for further information.
