Youngsters Enjoy Matchday at Welford Road

Young players from Syston Rugby Club shared matchday with Leicester Tigers on Saturday 3rd November as they made up the Guard of Honour to welcome the teams at Welford Road.
Tigers hosted Worcester Warriors in the Premiership Rugby Cup as the Syston group had the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of legends on the Welford Road pitch in front of a 17,815-strong crowd.
Guard of Honour groups fly the flag in the moments building up to kick-off and welcome both teams on to the pitch in front of a roar from the crowd. No one in the stadium gets as close to taking a pass, making a tackle or catching a high ball.
Tony Clapham, accompanied the Syston team and said: “It’s the first time the kids we’ve brought along today have taken part in the Guard of Honour at Welford Road but we usually aim to come down each season with different age groups to take part in the matchday coaching clinics, training with Tigers, and it’s a great inspiration to the team.”
