Rugby match honours memory of Richard 'Rick' Taylor
Updated 10:51am Monday 22nd July 2013 in News
A RUGBY match in memory of a well known North-East player and coach is being held to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.
Richard Taylor, known as Rick, died in July last year from a heart condition.
He played rugby for Stockton and Acklam, was a Durham County referee and coached both junior and senior sides at Stockton, Acklam and Darlington.
His rugby playing sons, Dan and Steve, have organised a fundraising memorial match on Saturday, July 27, at Stockton Rugby Club’s Ground in Station Road, Norton, kicking-off at 3pm.
A team comprised of players who Mr Taylor either played with or coached, will form as a Stockton select against an Acklam side including guests from other clubs.
Anyone wanting to play, even for a short spell, or watch is welcome. The event will also feature a raffle and an auction.
