Leeds Trinity & All Saints RLFC will be celebrating its 10th anniversary in Student Rugby League when the club stages its annual Old Boys game on Sunday 9 October.
The traditional reunion fixture between past and present students at the Horsforth college will once again be staged in honour of Trinity & All Saints student David Cole, who passed away in 2003 following a lengthy battle with cancer. A series of fundraising events will take place during the course of the day, with all proceeds being directed to a charity nominated by David's family.
Club founder Rob Potts commented: "I'm really proud of the way that members of the rugby club have rallied to the cause in recent years and established the Dave Cole Memorial Shield as a fitting tribute to Dave."
"The fact that this year's game also marks the 10th anniversary of the club gives the event added significance and I hope that as many former players and supporters as possible can turn up on the day to lend their support."
A special 10th anniversary rugby jersey has been produced with the help of event sponsors Kukri Sports and www.atthegeorge.com. Event organisers are hopeful of emulating the figures raised for charity in recent years.
The day will also feature a football match between past and present students, who will also be competing for the Dave Cole Memorial Shield.
