Burntwood Rugby Club took part in the NatWest Rugby Force initiative – one of five Staffordshire clubs which submitted projects to obtain funding.

After viewing the final test match between New Zealand and England it was paint brushes at the ready as a small army of volunteers set about painting the old changing rooms.

A mix of senior players, junior players and their parents, plus club committee men were joined by Staffs RDO Simon Hincks and RFU Club Management and Governance Officer Alex Thompson who each grabbed a brush and completed the task by early afternoon.

A spokesperson said: “On inspection it was safe to say that most of the paint went where it was intended to go!”
