Martin Johnson opens Ilkley Rugby Club’s New Clubhouse

Arriving by helicopter, the visit came just three days after his resignation as England’s Manager. Johnson signed autographs from star struck fans and caught moments of the ongoing first team match against Scarborough. Despite his recent unfortunate series of events, Johnson must have brought some luck with him as all Ilkley teams won on the Saturday, the first team defeated Scarborough 24-0, seconds 60-7, extra seconds 54-7 and third team 22-17!

As sponsors of the ground, Hunters are proud supporters of Ilkley Rugby Club, the new clubhouse looks absolutely spectacular and we wish the club luck for the remainder of the season.
