Many of the Scotty’s Barbarians team members had taken part in a world record rugby attempt earlier this year and after a good battle on the pitch they beat the March Bears.

The day was organised by Tanya Porter who said it raised around £500 for the charity which supports families of service men and women.

The day included bouncy castles, stalls, a kick boxing demonstration and refreshments.

Tanya said: “it was a close call match but a great game, apart form when one of the Scotty’s team broke their ankle towards the end.

“Luckily his girlfriend had travelled with him so could drive him back home to Wales.”

Thanks were sent to Revision Recruitment who sponsored the game and Bretts Transport for their use of their trailer.
