Call for recruits from Lightning

The county’s American Football team – Northumberland Lightning – is holding an open day this weekend in a bid to recruit new members.

The event, which takes place at Ashington Rugby Club between 9am and 1pm, is to try to attract not just players, but coaches, statisticians, physios, sponsors, cameramen, photographers, referees, game-day helpers and more.

People of all ages, genders and abilities are welcome.
