It is not just the main pitch that will see action on Saturday as the season rounds off with a big day of rugby at Franklin’s Gardens.
The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup takes over the training pitches between 9:30am and 1pm, with Under-11 teams from across the East of England and beyond competing for the right to represent the club at the Aviva Premiership Final and lift the silverware on the Franklin’s Gardens main pitch at half-time later in the day.
At 1pm on Pitch 1 the Northamptonshire Alliance DPP Under-14s face their counterparts from Servette Geneva RFC, a touring team from Switzerland who will give our local youngsters the opportunity to test themselves against opponents they will not have come up against before.
Then at 3:15pm it is the Saints’ turn, taking on Bath in a massive match that will be pivotal in the chase for the Aviva Premiership’s top six and the European Rugby Champions Cup spot that comes with it.
So make sure you arrive early and cheer on the youngsters as they get Saturday started! Match tickets are available now at www.tinyurl.com/SAI-BAT-1516 and by using [email protected] supporters can beat the match day queues and save the admin fees.
The Match Day Village and bars open at 12noon, with the full stadium open from 1pm. Then after the game there will be live music in the Rodber Suite, and the Saints Supporters Club will be presenting the trophy to their player of the season.
Arrive early, leave later, and make a full day of it at Franklin’s Gardens!
