Boro back home af­ter tough start

Rochdale Observer - - FAITH NEWS -

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.”
