Durham Charity Match
Get down to MC for a 6:00pm kick off on Wednesday 27th February to show your support for Durham and for the Zambian project
With a third unbeaten season in the league and a BUCS title wrapped up by the Durham 1st XV in the last three years, all eyes now turn to the impending BUCS Cup competition and the road to Twickenham. For the last two years the palatinates have made it through to rugby's HQ, being successful in 2011. However the final in 2012 was a match to learn from for Durham's top team as they were handed an unexpectedly harsh beating by a resilient and fearless Hartpury team. But this year there is a desire to rectify this anomaly from the eleven players left over from last year as Captain Josh Beaumont reveals; "It was a hard day of mixed emotions at Twickenham last year, after an incredible season, for it to end like that was a bitter pill to take. However, it provides us with the perfect footing in which to enter the knock-out stages. We know the feeling of success and failure, and know how we need to play to achieve the former."
The game is being played as DURFC's second charity game raising money for Sport in Action, Zambia. After the weather had its say in the last charity match in November, the palatinate powers that be are hoping that the spring weather and attraction of a BUCs quarterfinal against a relatively unknown opposition will draw a big crowd and raise plenty of money for the charity.
Tickets are available at £2 before or £3 on the door with all proceeds going to the charity. Members of DURFC will be flyering and selling tickets around the university over the days leading up to the game, so make sure you pick yours up then.
