Memorial Match for Newark soldier

7 months ago By Newark RUFC - WEB SITE

Corporal Ivano ‘Sean’ Violino

Newark Rugby Club will stage a special match on Saturday Sept 9 to mark the 10th anniversary of a soldier who was killed on duty in Afghanistan.

The match between the club's 3rd/4th XVs and 36 Engineer Regiment from Kent will be in memory of Corporal Ivano ‘Sean’ Violino who was 29 when killed in Helmand Province.

It’s all part of a family fun day at the club to raise money for the Armed Force's charity SSAFA, which provides welfare and support for those serving, veterans and their families, and the Newark Patriotic Fund that provides similar support locally.

Admission is free.

Kick off is 2pm.

Sean’s sister Sinel is the main organiser. She explained: "We wanted to do something in his memory that will raise money for those still struggling from their service and as a thank you for everything that they have done for us."

Among the sideshows planned are a bouncy castle for children, a balloon release and novelty race.
It is also planned to have a short ceremony before the match led by Jayne Darling, a 1940s-style singer.

Alan Swain, president of Newark Rugby Club, said: “We are delighted to be hosting such a special match at Kelham Road and we hope all of Sean's family and friends and the visiting players enjoy their afternoon at the club.

“Newark Rugby Club has a long history of hosting teams from the Services and supporting their charities.

"The club was approached some time ago about the idea of staging a match and we are delighted the regiment are making the effort to organise a social team to play a mix of our senior 3rd and 4th XVs.
It should be a fun afternoon for all on and off the pitch.

Anyone who can help with raffle prizes, or is willing to be a helper at the event, can email sinelloveday@gmail.com
