On Saturday 22nd December 2012 the club will host a day to end all others (possibly). In previous years we’ve had Christmas parties, brass band night and Christopher Tickle Cup days as separate occasions. This year they’re all happening together in what should be a very special occasion.
At 12.00 we start with the Ladies taking on Glossop Ladies for the Dave Bennett Cup, and we also have what promises to be a very tasty encounter between the Junior and Senior Colts.
At 14.00 we have what for some will be the highlight of the year as Eccles players past and present combine in a three way competition for the Christopher Tickle Cup. Anyone wishing to participate should speak to one of the team captains; Greg Wilson, Glen Cahill or Billy Borrett.
With the rugby out of the way from 17.30 the Eccles Borough Band will be in attendance to play a selection of Christmas carols with singing-along a must. Following that there will be more music and entertainment throughout the night. Food and drink will be available throughout.
A number of events throughout the day will be aimed at raising money for the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation.
All club members and guests are encouraged to come down and join in the fun. For more information speak to your section coach/captain.
