Boro back home after tough start
LITTLEBOROUGH RUFC are back in action at Rakewood Road on Saturday as they are at home to De La Salle.
It comes following the long journey to Cumbria last Saturday, with the team pleased to be back playing in front of their own supporters.
The home fixture could also make it possible for other senior players who couldn’t be available last Saturday to be added to the selection list, at the meeting after training.
It’s been a tough start to the campaign for Littleborough, with the team currently sitting second bottom of the table after winning three of their seven games so far this season.
De La Salle are in sixth place, but head into the game on the back of a loss, having been beaten 17-10 at home to Oldham on Saturday.
Other games featuring Boro sides this weekend sees the second team travel to Leigh seconds for a match, while Littleborough thirds are in action with an away game against Hope Valley.
On Sunday, Littleborough Senior Ladies have an away match against a nearby rival as they head to Stockport Ladies.
Meanwhile, Littleborough RUFC were also celebrating recently as they held an event to mark the 80th birthday of Harry Hanson.
Harry has been a big part of the club for an extended period of time, and he was delighted with the recognition he received.
“I would just like to thank everyone for turning up to my 80th birthday party at the rugby club last Friday night,” he said.
“I have to say how pleased I was to see everybody, especially those colleagues who I haven’t seen for some time.
“Also many thanks for all of the cards and gifts, especially the birthday cake which I never expected, so thanks to the bar, catering staff and entertainers.”
