The City’s Rugby League Club Aberdeen Warriors  has been badly affected by the recent weather and contacted me to ask for the Council’s help to find a pitch for a very important match later this month.  The Warriors are the only Scottish team to feature in the first round of the prestigious Ladbrokes Challenge Cup – a competition that will be won at Wembley in August this year.

Having drawn a home match against Northumbria University to be played on Saturday 30th January, the club faced the real prospect of having to forfeit the tie unless a pitch could be found.  A huge thank you therefore to Alistair Robertson and his colleagues at Sport Aberdeen and the team at Rubislaw Playing Fields who have between them arranged for the match to be staged there.

Check the Warriors website for ticket details and head along to Rubislaw to support our local team.
