This year’s event was staged at Hallhill Sports Centre in Dunbar on Sunday 13 May and was as popular as ever with over 600 children from ages P3 to P7 from East Lothian, the Borders and Edinburgh taking partin an exciting day of rugby.

This year’s winners are:  Primary 3 – Haddington RFC; Primary 4 – Duns Grizzlies 2; Primary 5 – Haddington RFC; Primary 6 – Dunbar RFC; and Primary 7 winners are Portobello RFC.

Sponsoring the Dunbar Mini Rugby Tournament is always a great opportunity get fully involved in the local community as Karen Armstrong, Sales and Marketing Director comments: “We’re really delighted to be the sponsor of the Dunbar Rugby Minis Tournament – this is our eighth year of supporting this great community event, and we really enjoy being involved in such a popular and fun day out for families.

“Our Gospatrick Grange development in Dunbar allows us to continue to deliver a great choice of family homes locally, and we are undoubtedly attracting new families to the area so this sponsorship allows us to extend our support and commitment in the local community of Dunbar.”

David Wilson, Dunbar Rugby Club Chairman adds:  “This year’s event was once again a great success with an excellent turnout of support for the children involved in the matches.  We’re thrilled to have Taylor Wimpey East Scotland as our main sponsor for this event, and it was particularly satisfying to see every child who had taken part receive a medal - they all looked extremely proud of their achievements whether they won or lost.

“The Club enjoys fantastic support from its sponsors, volunteers, coaches, referees, parents and most importantly the all the children who ensure that the tournament remains a great success each year!”
