Last night saw the return of our Northumberland Vets 'Fri Night Lights' events at Morpeth Rugby Football Club.

100 Vets players from across five clubs descended on Morpth last night including a welcome debut from Blyth Buccaneers.

The matches took place in a tournament style with each team guaranteed at least two games of 25 minutes, much to the relief of the players!
