Stephen Marshall Testimonial Game
This year, Larne RFC are playing “A Charity Testimonial Game” between 2 sides of Larne RFC.
The Testimonial game is in order of celebrating lifelong member, Stephen Marshall’s recognition of his 20th Anniversary of 1st XV Debut for Larne RFC in September 2013.
Stephen Marshall’s side will consist of anyone who has played rugby with Stephen over 20 seasons v an ex grammar medallion side – all welcome to come and play or support. Kick off will be at 2.30pm at Larne RFC ground, Glynn.
The club hope to put on a small ballot of prizes that all contribute towards the Injured Players Association – a charity to look after seriously injured players for life and help prevent future injuries through research and education.
Attached are images in the vastly different years of Stephen Marshall.
