ODSAL Sedbergh are to host the annual fun day to honour the memory of former Bulls coach Eddie McGuinness on Saturday.

McGuinness was a former conditioning coach for the Bulls and Salford City Reds, and played amateur rugby for both Odsal Sedbergh and Wyke.

He was tragically killed in a road traffic accident in March, 2009 at the age of 43 and both his former amateur clubs have since held an annual fun day to raise money for his family.

This year’s event begins at 11.30am and will include five games of rugby league taking place with the highlight being the Masters fixture between Sedge and Wyke.

 The days fixture list is as follows:

 A variety of activities will be going on around the ground throughout the day such as face painting, tombola, Help For Heroes, bouncy castle and slide, cake stalls, BBQ, beer tent and rugby merchandise.

Advantage Sports will have a range of rugby merchandise available from NRL items to balls and protective wear.

The Bulls have also provided Sedge with leaflets which entitles fans to purchase a ticket for their home game with Widnes game on  September 7 for just £5.
