Capt Jack's match
cheffy 16 June, 2019 09:12
Some of you may remember a few years ago that there was a Charity match to remember Jack Wakefield 'Pirate Capt Jack' who sadly passed away far too young.
Jack would have been 16 this year and myself and a few others are planning to replay the game. It will be between Capt Jack's Pirate XV and an invitational Bristol Buccaneers XV, very much Vets rules!!
It will be played on the IOW on the 5th October. If you were there and would like to turn out again or just want to come over please message me!!
Looking forward to hearing from you!!

I may be tempted to come out of retirement for this one, as long as there is none of this running around nonsense.
