Titans supporters lay a wreath on behalf of the club
This year on Armistice Day a group of Rotherham Titans Rugby Union supporters called The Original Raiders visited The National Memorial Arboretum, in memory of those who sacrificed their lives for us during wars.
Whilst there, on behalf of Rotherham Rugby Club, Colin Coleman laid a wreath adorned in club colours at the cenotaph; this was mentioned in their dispatches. Alongside Colin, the other club representatives were Andy Thomson, Martin Gabriel, Mark Gabriel, Alf Hindmarsh, Shaun Coleman, Ben Coleman, Brad Coleman, Sam Coleman, Darren Mitchell, Wayne Huttley and Paul Naylor.
The Arboretum was attended by many hundreds of people from all over the world including The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester. Over the weekend the group paid a visit to St Georges Park, the home of the new National Football Centre and only just missed the England rugby team who had left to play Fiji at Twickenham.
The club plaque was presented to Karen Mclean who gratefully accepted and it is now in pride of place at The Leopard in Tutbury.
The Titans supporters laying of a wreath further reinforces the bond and connection between Rotherham Rugby Club and the Armed Forces. This bond between the two entities has been strengthened again recently with the collaboration of The Yorkshire Regiment Trophy, Titans involvement in the Tickets for Troops scheme and their support for the Military Covenant.
Additionally, some images from the weekend’s trip have been added to the gallery section of the website.
