WORCESTER Warriors are taking over Malvern Rugby Club for a day in a bid to put youngsters through their paces.

Five players from the Aviva Premiership club will be running training sessions for junior players between 10am and 1pm on Sunday, September 17.

There will also be a fun station hosted by Warriors’ community coaches where both players and parents can try out their rugby skills on various games.

Warriors’ takeover day is open to all players, members, families and friends of Malvern as well as Worcester Warriors’ supporters who would like to see the players close up and have their photos taken with their heroes.

On the day, there will be fun activities as well as a hog roast, raffle and refreshments in the club house.

Colin Harding, Malvern’s Warriors coordinator, said: “We are delighted to be one of only a handful of Worcester Warriors Hub Clubs in the area and we are really looking forward to welcoming the players to Malvern.

“It will be a really fun day for all the junior members of Malvern to get up close to the Warriors players and learn some new skills.

“Everyone is welcome to come along, so if you are thinking about either your son or daughter learning to play rugby, come along and see what goes on.

“Malvern is continuing to go from strength to strength, everyone is really friendly and welcoming.

“We have teams covering all junior age groups from under sevens to under 17s.

“Training is every Sunday morning at our Spring Lane Ground, so come along and see what its all about.”
