The club won ‘Pride of the Midlands’ in the first round and beat 2nd place Luctonians RFC by almost twice as many votes.
In the second round they submitted a 200 word piece to why they should win the national title and found out on Monday that they were successful, earning them the title ‘Pride of the Nation’.
Sleaford won a full pitch kit (post protectors and flags) and have a date booked with an England Rugby Legend who will visit the club over the NatWest Rugby Force weekend on 27th & 28th June.
NLD Council Member Tracy Edmundson said ‘We are delighted for Sleaford on this fantastic achievement. It is great to have an NLD club crowned Pride of the Nation’, keep up good work!’
