AN ‘OLD Boys’ match will be held on the Close at Rugby School this weekend

The free family event on Sunday will see the Parliamentary Lions play an invitation XV sponsored by Webb Ellis Ltd, made up of former players from local clubs and guest appearances from community leaders.

The public event kicks-off at 2.30pm. Entry to The Close is from Barby Road, off Lawrence Sheriff Street. On-street parking is limited so town centre car parks should be used.

The match has been organised by Rugby Borough Council and Mark Pawsey MP, with the help and cooperation of Rugby School, to promote the town among Lords and MPs and raise funds for the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.
