Gloucester Rugby star Henry Trinder will be the special guest when more than 400 boys, aged 11 to U18 Colts are taking part in the 42nd annual 7s tournament at Cirencester Rugby this Sunday.

The hugely anticipated event has attracted teams from across the county and beyond, including Bath, Bishopstone, Bromyard, Cirencester, Cheltenham Saracens, Chippenham, Chosen Hill, Dings Crusaders, Dursley, Fairford, Grove, Ledbury, Stow and Supermarine.

Trinder, a former Cirencester youth player, will present a selection of awards and trophies around midday to the morning winners.

Club treasurer and organiser Mike Timbrell said: “We are thrilled with the uptake and registration this year where we are putting on a day of 7s rugby for around eight age groups.

“Thanks also to the M&J volunteers who are helping to run the day, their support is essential for us to put on such an event of this size, providing refreshments for all visitors.

“The festival celebrates the end of the season and delivers a friendly and enjoyable atmosphere.”

Last year the U18/Colts Hugh Evans Memorial Shield, was won by Bath U18s, with Cirencester runners-up.

The Bevan Bridges player’s cup was won by Cirencester’s Tom Woodward.

Matches start at 9.00am with the closing awards and presentations around 4.30pm.

There will also be a BBQ and the clubhouse bar is open all day.
