Craven Park to host returning COHDRL East v West clashes
This Sunday (24 October) Hull College Craven Park will host City of Hull and District Rugby League’s East v West event, showcasing the brightest junior rugby talent the city has to offer.
The origin event will be spread across two weekends, Sunday 24th October and Sunday 31st October, with the two representative sides split by the River Hull facing off throughout the day. The ‘East v West’ concept is a welcomed return to the Junior Rugby calendar after the event was postponed last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In total, over 200 players from Hull’s junior leagues have been chosen for the sides across 5 different age groups from U11’s to U16s.
Hull KR Academy Pathways Coordinator and Event Co-organiser, Rob Wilson was delighted to see the return of the ‘East v West’ fixtures: “It’s brilliant news for the local game that we can play the East v West tournament this year with the last one being played back In 2019.
“This will be the biggest event yet with five East v West Games and also the u18s Clive Sullivan Trophy being played for. The first game to kick off the event is the u11s Venture Smith Cup, helping celebrate Black History Month alongside the under 18s Grand final which will be played for the Clive Sullivan Trophy.
“The COHDRL management group would like to thank Paul Lakin and everybody at Hull KR for their fantastic support towards the youth game in Hull by inviting us to play these games at Hull College Craven Park stadium.
“The management group would also like to thank Hull City Council, Humberside Police, the Lord Mayor of Hull and all of our sponsors and volunteers for their support in helping make this a great event for grassroots rugby league in Hull.”
Gates open at 9am for the event with the first fixtures kicking off at 10am.
