By Sport Bury


The Aviva Premiership Rugby season may be over for another year, but memories of the 2018 final will live long in the memory for youngsters from Bury St Edmunds after they got to experience the special day at Twickenham Stadium.

Thanks to their involvement with the testimonial season of the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup, Bury St Edmunds Under-11s were given the chance to watch Exeter Chiefs and Saracens battle it out for the title – as well as meeting with former England stars Lewis Moody and Jason Robinson pre-match.

That came after they secured their spot at the showpiece event at the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup Festival, hosted by Leicester Tigers.

Bury St Edmunds brothers Johnnie and Arthur Rowland were also honoured to be named their team’s Most Valuable Players, and 11-year-old Johnnie admitted the whole day had been one to savour.

The Finborough School pupil said: “To step out on the Twickenham pitch, made me want to come back again and actually play.

“I just can’t believe what’s happened and it’s a memory we are all going to hold on to for a long time.

“It was crazy to meet Robinson and Moody, they are some of my biggest idols.”

Bury were one of 24 under-11 and under-12 teams in attendance for the final – representing two sides for each age category from the festivals hosted by each of the 12 Aviva Premiership Rugby clubs throughout the season.

This campaign represented a milestone season as it was the 10th anniversary of the national grassroots rugby initiative.

The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup has concluded its testimonial season. In the last decade, over 82,000 youngsters have participated in the grassroots tournament – enough to fill Twickenham Stadium.
