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.
Littleborough had requested an extra fixture for their first day, so on Saturday morning they set off to RC Gouda. The team started their European rugby off with a good victory, before enjoying some famous Dutch hospitality.
On Sunday the team set off for the Hilversum Festival. They faced a full day of rugby, with food and beer tents available for refreshments. Following the tournament the hospitality tent was buzzing and all the players can celebrate the end of another successful tournament.
On the Sunday evening the group walked down to the local marina where they enjoyed a fabulous end of tour meal together. The team then made their way home on Monday after a great weekend.
