THORNBURY begin their 2014/15 season with an attractive fixture against Welsh club Aberavon Harlequins on Saturday.

The Quins will be tough opposition for Thornbury but excellent preparation for the season ahead.

Spectators will be treated to two games of rugby as Thornbury’s Development XV (Colts) take on Aberavon Harlequins Youth at 1pm before the firsts kick-off at 3pm.

Following the very successful fund-raising event held recently at the rugby club they will also be presenting a substantial cheque to Cancer Research representatives during the evening.

Entrance is free with a bucket collection and raffle.
