We’re back on for Tuesday 9 November 2021
Even though there was no event in 2020, there are many who still benefitted from your support, even during these difficult times, through The MRC 1664 Challenge.
A huge thanks from all of us!
Gates open at 16:30
Under 16s match 17:30
The Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines 18:45
THE BIG GAME 19:30
MEDICAL STUDENTS vs ROYAL MARINES
2019 was the eleventh Medics Rugby Challenge and hosted by Plymouth Albion and originally supported by the team at Formedia Marketing and Public Relations. Sadly last year’s event had to be cancelled but here’s hoping this year’s bounces back!
The first game in 2009 was a draw, followed the year after by a well deserved victory by the Medics' team. 'Royal' have really had the upper hand since then, in so far as wins, but the Medics have never given up despite the size and age disadvantage.
As usual, the evening will start with a youth match between Devonport Services and Ivybridge Under 16s (1730). A marching display will follow by the Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines (1845) before a minutes silence, in memory of those who have given their lives in the service of their country. The main game kicks off at 1930.
An auction which follows the game and raises an incredible amount for the RMA – the Royal Marines Charity.
However you are involved, on behalf of those unlucky enough to benefit from your support, thank you!
Please put Tuesday 9rd November 2021 in your diary and we hope to see you at this year's game.
