Teams have been getting to grips with a popular touch rugby tournament.
The third Seckford Shield has made a welcome return to Woodbridge’s sporting calendar. The competition – played on Sundays at Kingston Field from 4pm – will culminate on August 18 with the final at the town’s rugby club.
It features teams from The Angel, Ye Olde Bell and Steelyard, Kings Head, Warwick Arms, China Whites, the Mariners, Coach and Horses and the Tea Hut.
The competition is backed by Woodbridge Rugby Club, Suffolk Coastal District Council and Suffolk Sport’s lottery-funded Sportivate campaign. The seven-a-side games are not full contact, with unlimited substitutions and one female player must be on the pitch at all times.
Simon Bennett, Woodbridge Rugby Club’s director of rugby, said: “Any initiative that encourages people to become more active must be welcomed.
