Plymouth rugby community ready to remember Paul Lethbridge

THE annual Paul Lethbridge Memorial Day will take place on Sunday at Tamar Saracens’ Parkway ground.

The event is now in its seventh year and is held in memory of former Tamar Saracens, Old Techs and DHSOB player and youth coach Paul Lethbridge, who sadly died in 2013.

Each year the event, which is well supported by the whole Plymouth rugby community, gets bigger and bigger and raises more money. Organisers pick a different charity each season and this year they will be supporting ‘Talk Outside of the Scrum’, also known as Toots, which is a new mental health rugby charity.

The main feature of the day will be a rugby match between Tamar Saracens and Old Techs at 3pm. However, both clubs’ 30-man squad has to feature at least 15 players who are over-35.

Former Premiership referee David Rose is set to officiate the game.

As well as the rugby match there will be a hog roast, bouncy castle, a sweet stall, a raffle and an auction, with plenty of impressive rugby memorabilia up for grabs.

The day starts at 1pm with the rugby match kicking off at 3pm.
