Double Tribute To Rugby Coach 2009: 110pm Saturday

Double tribute to rugby coach

1:10pm Saturday 9th May 2009 The RFU’s London South rugby development team will celebrate the life of their colleague and local rugby coach James
Skeens by attempting to complete the Three Peaks Challenge, climbing the three highest mountains in the United Kingdom – Ben Nevis, Snowdon and Scafell Pike – in 24 hours. James died tragically at the age of 29 this year after a courageous battle against cancer. He left behind a baby boy, Oliver, and a loving and devoted wife, Jeanette. James joined the RFU role as a community rugby coach in 2005 and he coached local clubs and schools in Surrey, particularly in the Mole Valley area, and the Surrey Ladies’ Under 15s and U18s. The RFU London South team of rugby development officers and coaches – who help to develop and promote the game in schools and clubs in Surrey, Kent and Sussex – intend to complete the Three Peaks Challenge on May 20, 2009. All funds raised in this charity event will go directly to the Palliative Care Unit at The Royal Marsden Hospital, which cared for James during his illness. More information and donations welcome at: The James Skeens Memorial Match, between a Surrey President’s XV and a Mole Valley XV, will kick off at 7.30pm on Friday May 29 at Dorking RFC.
