A group of rugby enthusiasts grabbed the opportunity of a lifetime during a special coaching clinic.
Young players from North Walsham Rugby and Football Club honed their skills with the professionals at Leicester Tigers.
The group from the market town took part in a Matchday Coaching Clinic with the Tigers and then joined a nearly 24,000-strong crowd for the final home fixture of the Aviva Premiership season at Welford Road against Sale Sharks.
Nathan Calvert, a coach at North Walsham, accompanied the team for their half-time photo with Tigers scrum-half Jono Kitto. He said: “We’ve had a great day and the kids have all really enjoyed the time at the coaching clinic and at Welford Road.”
The North Walsham players also quizzed Tigers’ Norfolk-born player George Catchpole about his life in rugby before they soaked up the matchday atmosphere at Welford Road and watched the professionals in action.
