Presidents Day is a great tradition within our club that enables us to all get together on the early May Bank Holiday and celebrate the culmination of another season by watching our teams in action.
Due to COVID we have not been able to enjoy the occasion since 2019.
Such as been the growth of the club in recent times that the feast of rugby now stretches out across the whole weekend with the showpiece event taking place on the Bank Holiday Sunday.
This year we will kick things off on Friday night with the launch of our new Touch Union Sessions at 6pm before the Friars play host to Darlington Mowden Park Vets at 7.30pm.
It also marks the start of our popular Street Food Fridays which run throughout the Summer. Two J's Woodfired Pizza will be on site from 5pm so you can enjoy your tea at Mayfield Park.
This time last year we had no female playing offer to speak of but we are proud to now boast a Ladies team and Under 13 & Under 15 Girls teams.
And we're delighted to announce that they will take centre stage on Saturday. The Under 13 and Under 15 Girls face Darlington and Gateshead with the games getting underway at 10am and 11.15am respectively.
Then Hartlepool Ladies line up for their final outing of a breakthrough season when they entertain Blaydon Redkites at 2pm.
On Sunday we have a series of Mini & Junior games taking place from 10am onwards, before Hartlepool A take to the field against Seaham at 1pm.
And in the main event of the weekend the first team play Royals RFC from Jersey at 3pm who will be joined by some guest players from around the town.
