Halifax RLFC’s Big Apple Day on Sunday culminates in an U-7 and U-8 tournament.

After the match against Whitehaven (kick off 3 pm) youngsters will take to the pitch.

The after-game junior tournament involves over 100 children from Siddal, Elland, King Cross Park U-7 and U-8s, Illingworth U-7s and Ovenden U-8s playing 10 minute games.

Parents have been sold discounted entry tickets and the initiative will swell the gate by 250.

Halifax RLFC will appoint first time players to be ambassadors of each team and players will be presented with a special T-shirt and have photographs taken.

Each child also receives a Cool Katz membership card allowing free entry to remaining home games.

Halifax RLFC are returning to the Shay after an absence of nearly two months due to repairs being carried out on the pitch.

The fun starts from noon with a live band playing in the East Stand car park, barbecue and outside bar.

Paying fans also have the chance to win a weekend break to New York.
