Junior Rugby Tour to the Hilversum Festival: Littleborough RFC U13s

Littleborough RFC U13s embarked on a 3 night tour to one of Holland’s top rugby events; The Hilversum Festival. Hilversum is one of the largest rugby festival in Europe, and in the past has attracted teams from the UK, Holland, Denmark, Lithuania, Ukraine, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal and even South Africa.

The team met at their club house on Friday morning where the coach took them to Dover for a lunchtime crossing. Arriving at their accommodation in the early evening the team had time to check in and relax after their journey.
