Next month Heriot’s Rugby Club have been invited to send a Senior team and an U18 team to take part in the 6th Belgrade Winners Rugby 7’s Tournament. This is a traditional rugby sevens tournament which will take place in Belgrade, the Capital City of Serbia, to celebrate 100 years of Serbian Rugby. Many of you will be aware of the connection with Heriot’s School and Serbia – during the First World War in 1916, 26 Serbian Boys were evacuated to Edinburgh and were educated at George Heriot’s School. It was here that they learnt how to play rugby which they took back to Serbia on their return and introduced to their compatriots.
On Saturday 9 June the travelling players are hosting a fundraising BBQ – looking to raise money for the tour. The event will run from 15:00-20:00 at Goldenacre.
Food, beer, games and music with the best views in Edinburgh.
Adult tickets are priced at £10 and U18 tickets at £5.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org, if you would like a ticket – they must be bought before the day for catering purposes.
