That’s exactly what the volunteers down at Eccles Rugby Club, along with one our directors, Ross Seward, and engineer Andrew Maddocks did when a special open day called the Barbarians was held a few weeks ago.
The history of Eccles Rugby Club is long standing, Ross himself played from a very young age and into adulthood as did Andrew. The club knew it was important to reinvigorate, encourage and spark the motivation of its current junior players that are aged from 5 years to 16 years old back up again. Training has had to take a back seat over the year due to Covid restrictions, so it was paramount that the club held this special day for them, but also to encourage new recruits to join the club, along with trying to tempt some adults back into guest coaching as well.
The club has many teams, and the day was open to both boys and girls of all ages to try out and take part in the various activities from passing, defence work, negotiating assault courses and of course learning about teamwork.
Seward Refrigeration are sponsors of Eccles Rugby Club, so as a director, Ross said, “I was proud to be able to take part in this fantastic, highly motivating day with the club and being able to encourage the next generation of players to take part in what is a fantastic sport.”
As a family run business Seward Refrigeration are always happy to support its local community and help future generations in growth especially with team sports.
