This Friday May 17th will see Stourbridge rugby clubs amateur sides bring the curtain down for this season as they compete for bragging rights, the ‘Clash of the Titans’ trophy and most importantly to raise funds for charity.
The Greyhounds) and the Grasshoppers will take to the Stourton Park first team pitch on Friday night aiming to raise vital funds in support of our chosen charity Birmingham Children’s Hospital..
BCH have provided support and care for several club families in recent years in particular 14 year old Tom Mole who received outstanding care at the hospital last year prior to his sad passing so BCH was an obvious choice for our charity.
The mighty Grasshoppers will be looking to avenge last seasons defeat against their ‘illustrious’ opponents, the Greyhounds who have celebrated their second season in the North Midlands Reserve League Division 2 with an improved seventh place finish.
Both teams will take to the field resplendant in their new sponsored kits with all proceeds from the shirt sales, gate receipts and the raffle going to the charity funds.
The fun starts at 7pm, entry is only £5, under 16’s free with refreshments available all night followed by FREE post game entertainment from local band Big Jim & the Black Cat Bones, thanks to the generosity of the father of one of the Grasshoppers players, Robin Bayley.
