Working closely with the Newcastle Falcons we are delighted to announce that each eligible player from the U13, U14 and U15 Age Grades will be offered a free of charge ticket to “The Big One” – the Newcastle Falcons Aviva Premiership game against Northampton Saints that will be played at St James’ Park on Saturday March 24 at 5.30pm.
The attached includes details of how to register for your tickets along with other useful information – please note the deadlines and respond as quickly as possible. Tickets will be allocated up to a maximum number per team to reflect the numbers registered to take part in the County Festivals .
The Festivals - Overview (from Glenn Forster)
The format for the u13's - u16's is still to be finalised.
The general structure is in place, with The Falcons hosting the event at Bullocksteads on 22nd April.
We can't determine start / finish times yet, due to TV coverage of the ECC which will take place "sometime" over that weekend.
The structure will be Pool Groups, with short time games, similar to that of the Friendly Festival.
Once I've got the final numbers for u13's TEAMs, I'll be able to produce a group structure.
I'll go out to a club at each age grade and ask for rough streaming, so the players can play other teams on a more like for like basis.
No scores will be recorded, no overall winners.
