U7s, 8s and 9s festival a success

Thursday 3 March 2022

Falcons Community hosted one of their largest grassroots match day festivals last Saturday, supporting community rugby at Kingston Park.

We were delighted to welcome over 1,500 participants, parents, coaches, and spectators to Kingston Park last Saturday to take part in our Under-7s, 8s and 9s match-day festival.

We had a total of 45 local rugby clubs, with 101 teams from across Northumberland, Durham, Cumbria, the Scottish Borders and North Yorkshire showing off their skills on a beautiful sunny morning.

Each participant received a free ticket to the Newcastle Falcons V Bath game, creating a special atmosphere around the stadium.

“It’s brilliant, the kids are so excited to be here” (Morpeth RFC Coach).

“Seeing everyone come together is what rugby is all about!” (Rockcliff RFC Coach).

The festival has built excitement for the return of the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup festival on March 12; a nationwide festival for Under-11 and Under-12 teams.
