Following last week’s overseas fixture between Eccles U16’s and Wrexham, apparently the River Dee has now been classified as International Waters, a few committee members have been sent to the naughty step (OK Mr & Mrs T) with forms to fill in and a copy of the latest Collins World Atlas.
This now leads us on quite nicely to announce the annual Eccles Colts v Livingston U18’s overseas fixture which takes place this year on Sunday 20th March, KO 12:00 noon. To apply with the latest IRB regulations, Border Controls will be set up, by Mr & Mrs T, at the River Esk crossing just north of Carlisle.
Livingston, Players & Coaching Staff (not the Doctor), will first be visiting the club on the Saturday to watch the 2nd’s play Fylde and then enjoy the Ireland v Scotland game on the TV. I’m sure we will all make them truly welcome both on the Saturday & the Sunday.
