Seaton 10's started in 2009 as an in-house tournament as a tribute to Billy Lithgo's half century.The day was great success and we thought we should have an annual Tournament. 2010 was notquite the same - still a good day was had by both players and spectators.
This year we would like to invite more teams to take part. It's a great way to get the players backout training/playing. We would like to restrict the tournament to teams at RFU level 8 and 9.The tournament is aimed at kick starting the new season and the aim is to have a few decent gamesof rugby with a bit of fun thrown in (Tour Spirit).
