May & Bakers junior section are continuing to put in great work off the pitch in an attempt to expand the club.

The minis are attracting more than 50 boys and girls to open trainings and are looking forward to playing local side Barking in their first game of the season on Sunday.

The club is also taking steps to grow the youth section by hosting open training sessions for eight to 11-year-olds.

Jack Courtney, head of youth rugby, said: “We’re all really pleased with the development of the minis and hope that the boys who attended the youth section want to join us and continue to grow the club.

“It will be great to be able to feed players into the senior side in the future.

“We welcome players of all experiences so if you want to get involved get in touch or come down to our Tuesday night sessions starting at 7pm.”

The sessions run at 7pm every Tuesday at May & Baker Rugby club.
