Sunday was a busy day at Hamilton Park with the Peter Rogers Estate Agents Festival of Mini Rugby being held in conjunction with Newtownards & District Canine Clubs annual Open Show.
Almost 500 kids from P1-P7 representing local rugby clubs including Ards, Bangor, Donaghadee, Belfast Harlequins and Lisburn participated in the Peter Rogers Estate Agents sponsored Festival of Mini Rugby.
Ireland and Ulster player Jordi Murphy also made a special appearance to present the Ards Mini Rugby players with their end of season awards. Jordi was great and took time to watch some of the rugby, sign shirts and have photos taken with the players and parents alike.
Despite some parking issues by those not using the club grounds to park. Many favourable comments were received from on the organisation of both events.
A big thank you to all the volunteers who assisted in the day especially Mini Rugby Convenor Michael Wilson and Eddie Patterson from the dog club.
