TENNIS legend Boris Becker will be cheering on Luctonians Rugby Club at Mortimer Park next month.
The three-time Wimbledon singles champion will be watching Alex Davidson’s men in action against Yorkshire outfit Otley on Saturday, November 30.
Luctonians administrator Simon Green-Price said: “The fact that Boris will coming to rural Herefordshire is unbelievable.”
Becker will be speaking at Luctonians’ pre-match lunch and spending the weekend in the county with businessman and supporter Mark Blandford.
Blandford said: “Boris lives in Wimbledon and is a massive football fan - he supports Bayern Munich and Chelsea.
“I don’t think he knows too much about rugby but I have told him a lot about Luctonians.
“He’s a lovely guy and is aware that Luctonians are a thriving amateur club who play rugby at a semi-professional level.”
The German star is a brand ambassador for YouWin, of which Blandford is a company director.
