Vectis RFC hosted the annual Minis Festival today (Sunday 28 April 2019).
After over 17 years taking place at Seaclose Park, and through uncontrollable circumstances, a new site at Northwood was used.
The under Sevens, Eights and nines enjoyed a full, fun day and we have had really positive feedback from a number of Teams.
It is obviously regrettable that some teams were concerned about the pitches and felt unable to allow their teams to participate. The safety of players is always of paramount importance to all involved in youth rugby and is always the responsibility of each teams’ management group.
Vectis RFC were happy with the quality of the pitched but appreciate that others hold their own views.
We would hope that this years’ experience will not deter teams from visiting the island next year and we look forward to a successful 2020 Festival.
