Newbury Blues head coach Paul Archer is excited to welcome back their annual Charity ‘Pink Day’ to Monks Lane this weekend.

After a couple of years of not being able to host the event, it returns with both Blues and Stags at home to Banbury 1st and 2nd respectively.

The club, who host this charity event, will once again be raising funds in aid of Cancer Research, as well as the Volunteer Centre West Berkshire.

It is a fantastic day and a fantastic cause,” said Archer. “We raise so much money for cancer research and we look forward to it because we get to run out in that fancy pink kit.”

Both matches at Monks Lane will be kicking off at 2pm and Blues will be preparing for a huge game against top-of-the-table Banbury.

Archer’s side got back to winning ways with a 64-17 away win at Windsor and he is aiming for another big performance on Saturday.

“It is always a big day, the boys look forward to it and we hope our performances on the pitch match the efforts off it in terms of the fundraising and the good work that goes on behind the scenes.”

Supporters are encouraged to wear anything pink and help fundraise for two great causes.
