Yorkshire vs Lancashire Roses Match – May 7, 2016

Scarborough RUFC host Yorkshire vs Lancashire Roses County Rugby match, May 7th.

Scarborough RUFC received a huge festive boost after they were again awarded Yorkshire’s home clash against Roses rivals Lancashire.

The pair have met at Silver Royd before and will meet at Scarborough RUFC’s impressive £4million Scalby Road HQ again after impressing organisers with their hosting of several high-key fixtures in recent years.

The Roses clash is yet another coup for the club after they successfully hosted Yorkshire Carnegie’s British & Irish Cup win against London Scottish earlier this month.

The Roses battle will take place on Saturday May 7 2016, and the club are planning a host of matchday activities for younger fans and corporate packages for those wishing to watch the match in style.

CEO Graeme Young said: “It’s a huge coup for the club and continues our strategy of promoting grassroots rugby while attracting showcase fixtures to Silver Royd.

“The negotiations were tough and took a while as we faced some stiff competition from Doncaster Knights.

“To see them off and secure the game when they’re a club geared up for the Premiership is a huge capture for us.”
