Oswestry sports fans are being encouraged to head to Granville Park for a charity rugby game.

Oswestry Rugby Club will host the second Keighley Cup where they will face Oswestry School in memory of Nigel Keighley.

The game will kick-off at midday on Saturday and is now an annual event, and supporters are urged to stay on for the final two Six nations encounters which will be screened live.

The Keighley Cup is aiming to raise money for the 53 Foundation, founded by Nigel's son Dave and his partner Amy Hughes.

"The 53 Foundation was set up a couple years ago by myself and Amy with a lot of help from Dad," said Dave.

"The charity means even more to us now since Dad died as not only are we helping people with disabilities get active but we want to push the charity on further knowing it was something Dad was not only passionate about but also something he was proud of that myself and Amy were doing.

"Please do make every effort to attend an informal afternoon of rugby. Nige would have had it no other way. A raffle prize or two would be greatly appreciated."

Meanwhile, the first XV's clash with Winnington park at home was called off because of the 'Beast from the East', which saw plenty of snow dumped on Granville Park.

The postponement was the third straight call-off the Eagles have suffered and they have not played for a month.

They will be hoping for better fortunes on Saturday when they travel tot he Wirral to face Port Sunlight for a 3pm start.

The Second XV's result had not been posted tot he club's website as they made the trip to Marple, in Cheshire, where they were looking for their first league win of 2018.

On Saturday, they are without a fixture as the Keighley Cup takes centre-stage at Granville Park. It is likely many of the team will play here before they return to league action on March 24 against Linley & Kidsgrove.
