It's a huge day for all involved with the club and the town of Otley. 

The Old Otliensians RUFC defeated Skipton RUFC in the final of the Yorkshire Silver Trophy last year 36-24, which allowed the team to play for the national cup this year. 

The club was originally set up by ex-students from Prince Henry's Grammar School, based in the market town.  

There will be a celebration after the match at Twickenham Rugby Club before the coaches head back up north.
