Youngsters share matchday with Tigers

Youngsters from Glendon District Cubs shared matchday with 10-time English rugby champions Leicester on Saturday and followed in the footsteps of legends on the Welford Road pitch.

Tigers hosted Cardiff Blues in the Anglo-Welsh Cup as the cubs from Northamptonshire performed Flag Waver duties, parading a giant Tigers flag in the moments building up to kick-off and helped to welcome the teams on to the pitch in front of a roar from a big crowd.

Toby Holder, assistant district commissioner for cubs, accompanied the group and said: “We couldn’t wait to tell the kids they would be the official flagwavers at Welford Road.

“We’ve had it planned for a couple of months and now it’s here, you can imagine how excited they are.”
