Tomorrow Armed Forces Veterans will gather at Rochdale Mayfield to take part in the annual Veteran v Veterans Rememberance Fixture.
The fixture is always popular and 40 players have made themselves available for the fixture.
7 players from the North East Masters community will make the journey across the Pennines to take part. Jason Grant, Paul Clarke and Darren Cunnington from Catterick Crusaders Masters will join up with George Taylor, Ken Mason, Craig Ellis and Barry McDonald from North East Thunder Masters.
On arrival players are assigned to either team black or team purple for the game.
Crusaders Masters would like to acknowledge the huge effort Carl Abraham, from Rochdale Masters, has put into organising this great event again. Not just getting players and kits together but also sourcing sponsors, ensuring we have a good venue to play at, feeding us, securing prizes and securing funds to help all this happen! Great work.
Veterans Master Rugby League shirt and apparel can be purchased from Stag Sports. £5 from each shirt goes towards a military charity.
"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."
