RUCST will be running 2 tournaments side by side, one mixed (for both boys & Girls) and another specific to girls only. Last year’s tournament saw over 30 schools take part and we look forward to seeing another fantastic turn out this year.

Jamie Noble (Head of Community) said “It a fantatstic opportunity for the children, opening the AESSEAL New York Stadium doors to schools and the grass roots teams and getting over 200 kids playing on the pitch is an ideal way to demonstrate our commitment to the Rotherham community”
