A good crowd watched a memorial rugby match held at Wensleydale RUFC on Friday night.

The game remembered  James Ashcroft and Charley Purkiss-McEndoo, who both died tragically in separate incidents in 2019.

The game featured Wensleydale’s first 15 against an invitational 15 billed as the C&J Allstars, which is made up of players who played both James and Charley.

The event raised money for Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Mind UK.
