Codfathers head to Chester 7s

A team consisting of nine Whitby players plus three more from Heath Rugby Club and one from Bury Rugby Cub will form The Codfathers Squad at the second annual Chester 7s tournament tomorrow.

They will compete with 31 other teams from around the country and hope to go one better than last year, when they narrowly lost in the plate final to hosts Chester.

Codfathers’ captain, Anth Craig, said: “I’m really looking forward to the challenge of meeting some tough opposition. “We have a strong squad this year and we’re very optimistic.”

The team will be sponsored by Weird Fish Clothing.
