Rugby club try to hit the high notes - Watch the video

WHITBY Rugby Team tried to hit the right pitch when they recorded a “chip” themed song for a competition.

The whole team were invited along to the town’s Quayside restaurant to perform a song for the Chip Factor, an online singing competition to coincide with National Chip Week which celebrates one of the nation’s favourite delicacies.

The players have been practising hard and had a great time singing a chippy version of the Tom Jones hit, Delilah which was recorded on video and will be uploaded online where people can vote for it along with other entries.

The winner of the competition organised by the British Potato Council will get to eat a plate of chips anywhere in the world up to the value of £4,000.

They were rewarded after their mammoth singing session with a plate of chips each courtesy of the restaurant in Pier Road.

Owner Carol Fusco said: “They sounded brilliant. We treated them to a plate of fish and chips each, they had a great night.

“We’ve always supported Whitby Rugby Club. My son Stuart Fusco has played for them since he was 18 and he’s 34 now although he doesn’t play as often now due to family commitments.

“The Rugby Club was the obvious choice. My late husband Pete was vice president of Whitby Rugby Club and we sponsor matches.”
