FARINGDON will celebrate their tenth birthday with a series of events on Saturday, April 5.

The club, who began life in 2004, played their first match against Fairford in 2007 and now have junior teams ranging from under 6 to 15.

Faringdon’s big day will begin by mini and junior rugby matches before speeches and the unveiling of photos and trophies in the clubhouse, which opened this season.

This will be followed by a senior game between the current ‘Silverbacks’ (1st XV) and a ‘Goldenbacks’ line-up based on the team that played against Fairford.

Faringdon kitchen design company Goddard & Sons is sponsoring the day, including the players' shirts.
