West Norfolk rugby match helps cancer charities

Have your say

The annual John Burton Cup charity fixture, which is played in memory of John Burton, a longstanding member of the club who passed away after battling cancer, is usually contested between West Norfolk and Beccles.

However, with a last minute call-off by Beccles an interclub match was arranged in conjunction with players from the King’s Lynn Black Knights rugby league squad.

The teams also included members of the West Norfolk coaching team, who dusted off their boots to get involved in the fundraising. The match was well supported with £750 being raised on the day, going towards a range of cancer-related charities.
