Nottingham Rugby is working in partnership with The Cassidy Group as the clubs new Headline Sponsor for season 2019-20 to help grow the game within Nottinghamshire.  We are pleased to confirm that Nottingham Moderns RFC will host a new Primary School Year 5 & 6 City Festival on Monday 14th October 2019, which will be run in conjunction with Nottingham City School Sports Partnership.

The Festival will see local children have the opportunity to take part in games throughout the afternoon during the Rugby World Cup when we expect interest in the game to be at its peak.  Nottingham Moderns RFC will then invite any participants who want to continue to play the game down to their next training sessions for both boys and girls.  Steve Smith, Nottingham Rugby’s Chief Operating Officer said “the festival will help to attract new players into the game and we hope that Nottingham Moderns and other clubs in Nottinghamshire will be able to benefit from the day by recruiting new players.”

The festival will be one of many community programmes run throughout the season 2019-20, sponsored by The Cassidy Group, which is expected to have over 300 children taking part.
