The Old Mariner win Seckford Shield
The Old Mariner, one of Woodbridge’s many popular pubs, triumphed again in this year’s Seckford Shield – a touch rugby 7’s tournament.
The finals took place at Woodbridge Rugby Club on Sunday and afterwards, a prize giving ceremony was held coincidently, but appropriately, at The Old Mariner in Woodbridge.
Games were seven-a-side, featuring players aged 15 above in mixed teams, with unlimited substitutions and one female player had to be on the pitch at all times. The 20 minute games were held over six consecutive Sundays.
Simon Bennett Director of rugby at Woodbridge Rugby Club said: “Last year’s Seckford Shield was such a success it was clear that it should continue.
“The Mariner wanted to defend their title and other pubs wanted to join in.
