rugby3rugby Ilkeston RUFC U-16s (now the U-17s) recently toured North Yorkshire to play sides from Malton & Norton RUFC and Scarborough RUFC. The teams tour kit was funded thanks to the most generous sponsorship from the following organisations:- Unite the Trade Union, Smart Digital Business Solutions, Liniar Profiles, Optimation Ltd, and KLG Amazing Glazing.

Additionally the team were extremely lucky to receive generous backing from County Councillors John Frudd and Michelle Booth who donated a combined total of £900 towards the tour transport costs from their Derbyshire County Council Community Leadership Scheme funds.

Councillor Frudd is pictured handing over the cheque to players (from L to R) Harry Walton, Cameron Greenfield and Jordan Pritchett.
