HEREFORD Rugby Club are appealing for sponsorship from local companies to help fund a trip for a team of under-16 players to tour North West Spain.

The under-16s reached the North Midland Cup final last season, narrowly losing to Worcester RFC.

Most of the squad have been playing together since the age of six and have grown together into a very strong and competitive team.

The club want to make the tour inclusive to all players but know some families do not have the necessary funds for the five-day trip.
