Paul Lethbridge Memorial Match set to be the biggest and best yet


ORGANISERS are hoping this year’s Paul Lethbridge Memorial Match will be the biggest and most successful yet.

The event will be held for the fourth time on Sunday, August 28, at Weston Mill.

The day involves Old Techs, Tamar Saracens and DHSOB all playing each other in memory of former player Paul Lethbridge, who sadly died in 2013 at the age of just 47.

This year as well as senior matches there will also be an under-11 fun morning.

“This will be the fourth year we have done it,” said Dan Leeson. “And each year it just keeps getting better and better and we keep raising more and more money.”

Last year’s event raised £1,500, which was put back into local rugby via the three clubs.

As well as the rugby, there will also be a hog roast and bouncy castle.

Tamar Saracens have won the three-way competition for the last two years. Normally the winner hosts the follow year’s match but Saracens have passed the privilege on to Old Techs.

However, it is not the first teams of the city clubs that compete.

Leeson said: “All three teams will have squads of 22 and half of them have to be over-35, the rest are made up of players who knew, played with or were coached by Paul. The main aim of the day is to remember Paul.”
