Torquay Athletic RFU Juniors pay their respects

Torquay Athletic Junior Committee took the decision to cancel games on Remembrance Sunday and take the majority of the junior section to the Armistice Day event on Torquay seafront. 

 

 

The day started at 9.30 with a number of former players/veterans talking to the players about the day and what is means to them. The squad then walked down to the Cenotaph. A wreath was laid by our oldest and youngest members of the club together with a former player and serviceman.

Nearly 100 junior players  attended the event and were invited to stand close to the ceremony and join the march at its conclusion, after which they returned to the clubhouse for food and refreshments. 

The behaviour of the players was impeccable and our attendance at the ceremony was welcomed by many and aligned directly to the core values of Rugby and TARFC Junior Section.  The photos show the young people at the club before the ceremony.
