Burnley RUFC’s Junior section recently benefitted from a £400 donation, as junior coaches Mick McGee and Simon Finnan were sponsored to run the Pennine 10km.

Tomorrow, as part of the club’s preparations for the forthcoming season, Burnley host Gateshead Rugby Club in a series of touch matches, kick-off 4 p.m., followed by a barbeque at the club, with all welcome.

The club will also be showing the Super 15s rugby, as Natal Sharks take on Southern Kings, and Western Stormers face Blue Bulls.

Senior training is held each Tuesday and Thursday at the club from 7 p.m.

Annual membership fees are due - fill in a form with cash or a cheque payable to Burnley RUFC, or download and complete an electronic copy and e-mail to Burnley-rugby@hotmail.co.uk
