TRAFFORD MV Rugby Club are looking to grow their ranks in 2018.

In addition to their three adult teams playing senior rugby, the club boasts thriving mini/junior sections ranging from three-year-old boys and girls through to colts rugby at 17/18 years of age.

These young players are educated in the skills and techniques required to enjoy the sport safely as well as learning the ethos of rugby based on teamwork, leadership and respect.

The club has also recently seen a growth in former players and novices enjoying non-contact versions of the game in the forms of walking rugby for over-50s men and women on Wednesday evenings at 6.30pm and touch rugby for over-35s on Thursday evenings, again at 6.30pm.

MV are also interested in forming an occasional vets squad of local players interested in playing a few games a season.

All local players are invited to get in touch if interested.

At first XV level Trafford MV open the new year with one of their toughest fixtures so far this season when they face North Lancs/Cumbria League leaders Aspatria at their North Cumbrian ground on Saturday.
