In another initiative to promote grassroots rugby within the rugby community, Saturday 1st July at North Sydney Oval is being heralded as Grassroots Rugby Day.
All Norths grade players will swap their red and black socks for the day and don their old club and or school socks.
Rob Fowkes, Norths’ Junior Development Officer and Head of Athletic Performance says, “ The Norths grade players are really excited about publically showing their pathway to Norths by wearing their old socks.
“They might look a bit short on a few of our guys, but it is all in the spirit of telling the story to the current junior players of where they started and what their transition from juniors to colts and on to grade involved.
This week Norths grade players including Mitch Mcgrath, Jack Clancy and Alex Ironside caught up with a few of our Norths Junior rep teams and presented their jerseys prior to them competing in the NSW State Championships as well as giving them advice and chatting about their journey.
“Grassroots Day on July 1st is all about showcasing the importance of friendships and form, made while playing for a grassroots junior club, “ says Fowkes.
“All grade players will be on the field after the Sydney Uni game to sign autographs and chat to players.
“All boys and girls are encouraged to wear their club socks and jerseys.
In the lead up, Norths players will be sharing their stories with visits to training sessions and sharing videos, which tell the story of their pathway.
We look forward to a huge crowd at North Sydney Oval on July 1st. It’s in the school holidays and with no other Super games scheduled we are calling out for all rugby fans to support Norths in the re-run of last year’s grand final.
