Marlow Merlins U15s Easter Rugby Tour & Dorset Tournament

Over Easter, Marlow Merlins toured in France, playing Montigny-le-Bretonneux u15s. Hard fought, the boys played well but eventually lost to the stronger French side.

John Watson (Marlow Merlins) presented the winners with a pair of ‘Harry’s socks’ and said that the team would be remembering Harry with a minute’s silence during their game on 25th April.The French players were touched by Harry’s story and wanted to wear the socks at their next match, Thierry Lucidarme (Montigny-le-Brettoneux) sent the attached photos of his team wearing ‘Harry’s socks’ during a match the following weekend.

Harry’s socks were also presented to Dorset (see email below)..

“Just to let you know that that the Merlin's remembered Harry today. We travelled to North Dorset, we told them of Harry and what he meant to us and gave their captain a pair of "HM" socks. We then had 30 seconds of clapping and a noisy 3 cheers for Harry. We came second in the rugby but made some great friends and hopefully they will visit us next season.” The teams are pictured observing a minutes silence for Harry.
