Cleckheaton will swap their traditional red and white hooped shorts for pink and white when they host West Hartlepool on March 3.

Cleckheaton RUFC are hosting a breast cancer awareness day on Saturday March 3 to coincide with the visit of West Hartlepool.

The team’s traditional red and white hoops will be switched to pink and white as they wear a specially comissioned kit in recognition of breast cancer awareness.

The event will start with a ladies lunch, although anyone is welcome to attend, featuring freshly made curry, as well as a hot and cold buffet.

Wine and prosecco is included, as well as entry to the game and an evening disco.

There will be a collection at the match and it will be followed by raffles, games and an auction of players for the evening.

The club would like to raise as much money as possible and are looking for raffle prizes and one-off match-day programme sponsorship.
