Local business man Richard Shortis, of Wilco Motor Spares, has donated to Norwich Rugby Club a Rugby shirt signed by former England Captain Martin Johnson to commemorate England’s win over Australia in the 2003 Rugby World Cup. The shirt is mounted in a black frame displayed with pictures of the England Captain, Johnson, lifting the Webb Ellis Cup. Richard, a keen Rugby fan himself, said “Having enjoyed the game myself for many years I was delighted to be able to offer this amazing signed shirt to the Norwich Rugby Club to be auctioned in aid of the mini & youth section”.

The donation will be auctioned off at the annual dinner on Thursday 30th April. The proceeds of the auction will be going to support the youth and mini teams at the club. Mark Loveday, Head of Sponsorship and Fundraising for Norwich Rugby Club said “We are exceptionally grateful for the support of all our benefactors and are very thankful to Richard for his generous donation to the club. We hope the proceeds will be able to support the younger teams in their goal to be World Cup Winners one day”. Having been a player and former captain for the Norwich club himself Mark understands the need for support from local businesses and works hard to ensure the teams have the best support possible.
Richard said “It’s a pleasure to give something back to the game that I have enjoyed for so long and to encourage youngsters to join the club”.

Stewart CameronNorwich scored first with a try on 5 minutes when a touch kick from South Woodham Ferrers went out on half way. With great vision, Stewart Cameron, play.....
