Rugby Fathers and Sons - there's nothing like having your old man by your side

Father & Son partnerships in the Mighty Tertians

It’s a memorable day when you are old enough to play Senior Rugby, in the same team as your Dad.
Josh Sleightholme was 18 on 4 March & he marked the day by making his debut playing for our Senior 3rd team – the Mighty Tertians. He was joined by his Father, Martin Sleightholme, who is also the coach for the Holt U 14’s team.
James Pearce was also playing his first senior game with his Dad, David.
To top it off, they won, 48 – 5.
