Crusaders U18s kick off this weekend

Celtic Crusaders under 18s will play their first ever match this Sunday when they take on Featherstone Lions at the Brewery Field in Bridgend (kick-off 1.30pm). Admission is free of charge.

The match is the first in the season of the Gillette National Youth League, a 14-team competition that also contains sides from London, Cumbria, Yorkshire, Lancashire and Tyneside. All teams will play a 20-game season and will not take on the three teams who are furthest away from them.
