Another historic moment for EDRU

By Sean Fletcher

EDRU men and women's squads to play against the full national Bulgarian teams in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The strength of both squads continues to grow as more and more deaf and hard of hearing players become aware of EDRU. Historic moments and huge occasions are becoming the norm for this new generation of players.

EDRU women's 7's squad will play a two game competition against the Bulgarian national sevens squad before and during the full international game when the men play the national Bulgarian side.

A total squad of 35 players and volunteers will travel to Sofia on Friday 21st of September for a three day trip to take on this hugely experienced level two European international squad.

Huge thanks to those volunteers who have raised additional funding to assist in covering the cost of this trip and a huge thank you as always to some of our EDRU committee members who have facilitated the planning and implementation of this historic fixture.
