Lurgan Tigers’ fun day at Pollock Park proved the perfect finale to the rugby season and ideal way to signal the start of the cricket campaign.

Impressive numbers turned out to support the family entertainment despite adverse weather conditions.

South Africa-born Wiehahn Herbst was a special guest on behalf of Ulster Rugby. Exhibitions by the PSNI and Northern Ireland Fire And Rescue Service also proved popular attractions.

The inaugural Lurgan Tigers camp festival featured under 10s and under 11s from across Ireland, plus a touring party from Scotland.

Fixtures across two days provided plenty of impressive play - with visitors opting to camp out in Pollock Park the night before the opening fixtures.

“There was a very high standard,” said a Lurgan Tigers spokesperson. “A lot of new friendships were made and Lurgan’s reputation was greatly enhanced, with the club highly praised for the effort and organisation.”
