Tupton RFC proudly opened their brand new clubhouse last weekend after many years of fund raising, planning, building and lots of hard work.
The facility, which cost £475 000, was officially opened by Dennis Sutton who founded the club in 1969.
Local rugby and council dignitaries were also present in a 400-strong crowd to watch the historic event including NLD Honorary President Phil Cass and NLD RFU Council Members Mike Waplington & Tracy Edmundson (pictured).
Tracy commented ‘It is fantastic to be a part of the celebration of the new clubhouse at Tupton, it marks a new era for the game in the local area’.
The day included matches between Tupton’s Second XV and Ripley and a first XV fixture between Derbyshire neighbours Matlock.
