Rugby sevens teams from across the UK played in an annual tournament at Slough Rugby Club to in memory of two stalwarts of the club on Saturday.

The tournament included an elite competition and a beer competition in memory of Peter Crockford and Colin Pockock who sadly passed away.

More than 30 teams played in the 12th annual tournament which took place at Tamblyn Fields in Upton Court Park.

The event also included a junior competition for the first time and a bouncy castle, barbecue, stalls and live music to keep guests entertained throughout the day.

Ben Harris, who has been organising the tournament since it began, said: "It was great fun, every year it just gets bigger and better.

"The junior competition was a big success and it's a great way to get the youngsters into rugby and off the streets.

"The elite competition always runs itself and we have some of the best teams play.

"I've always said I wanted to keep this tournament non-commercial and tournament has just made a name for itself.

“I started this 12 years ago and I never looked back, everyone that helps on the day are volunteers and it's a great community event."
