Marlow Win the Mini Tournament Cup 2015

The Harry Mills Memorial Cup was presented to Marlow the winning under 12s team at the annual Mini Rugby Tournament.  The event held at Marlow HQ at Riverwoods, 21st - 22nd March is the largest mini rugby event in the South East.  Marlow Under 12's gave a cracking performance scoring 22 tries and conceding only 2 throughout the tournament.

The cup was presented by old mates of Harry's George Harjette and Henry Taylor both of whom played rugby with Harry at Marlow. They are now successful players with George playing for Durham University and Henry Saracens.  It is so wonderful for Harry to be remembered with this cup and it must have been a emotional moment for George and Henry.

Henry commented: "It was an absolute honour to do! I had a great day in the sun, watched the final and caught up with all the young lads afterwards. Great to see how strong the connection is between the club and memory of Harry! I was so impressed with how well the whole day was organised and will definitely be doing my best to get there next year. If I can help with anything else let me know? I have tweeted about the charity and #wheresourvaccine"

George added: It was mine and Henry's pleasure to present the award and it was the icing on the cake that Marlow won, which made both Henry and I very happy indeed!

Erica Ferguson Manager of the under 12's minis commented "We had a lovely day and hope we did you and Harry proud".  Erica arranged for the boys to be photographed with a #wheres our vaccine poster to support the campaign to introduce a vaccine for Meningitis B - the strain that took Harry.
