Chance to try out American Football

Northumberland’s first American Football team – the Northumberland Lightning – is holding its first rookie day on Sunday, October 13, between 9am and 1pm.

The day is a chance for anyone interested in the sport to get involved with the club, either as a player, coach or fan.

The aim is to promote American Football, one of Britain’s fastest growing sports.

The club, based at Ashington Rugby Club, currently runs a senior kitted side for 18s and over on Sundays from 9am to 1pm and a non-kitted flag football (for 14s and over) side on Wednesdays from 7pm to 9pm at Cramlington Learning Village.

Anyone who wants more information about the rookie day or the club should email chairman@northumberlandlightning.co.uk or visit their website www.northumberlandlightning.co.uk
