Roy Cotton Memorial Match – Thank You


Yesterday, we held our first fantastic memorial match for Roy Cotton as a fitting tribute to celebrate his involvement in pétanque at our club and beyond. With a splash of rain, a ray of sunshine and a great turnout we held the match alongside a tasty BBQ.

A massive thank you to Roy’s family and friends who turned out in large numbers, despite the weather, and to Nigel and the Harrogate Montpellier club members for good games and coming up with the original match idea to dedicate such a beautifully designed trophy.

Thank you to Robin and Carol for the delicious BBQ and all our members for their contributions. It all made for a really special day that saw us win the first match and trophy.

Here are some photos of the day…look out for updates as more are received to post up:
