U19s set for the big stage versus Bradford

Newcastle Thunder’s U19s squad will be looking to make next Friday a Magic Night Out for the club’s next generation, when their Super League Academies fixture against Bradford serves as a curtain raiser ahead of the Betfred League 1 fixture between the two clubs.

Approaching the half-way point of their season in a league that sees the North East’s most promising rugby league talent taken on their counterparts from Super League clubs, Thunder’s youngsters will be relishing the opportunity to play in front of a big crowd and make further positive steps in their development.

During 2018 the U19s have so far taken victory against London Broncos and Wakefield Trinity in addition to producing tenacious performances against the likes of Huddersfield and St Helens.

Meeting for the first time in 2018, Thunder will come up against a Bulls side that have bounced back from a slow start to the campaign, with four wins so far.

Kicking off at 17:30, entry to the U19s fixture is included on both Newcastle Thunder season tickets and Bradford match tickets, with the expected bumper crowd encouraged to show their support to the potential stars of the club’s future.

Tickets are on sale now priced at £12 for adults and £5 for under 16 and can be booked by clicking here, calling 0871 226 6060 or by visiting the Kingston Park Stadium box office.

These advanced prices are valid until Midnight on Thursday 17 May, after which a £3 match day supplement will apply to all tickets.
