Nedlands to play University for Mike Denton Memorial Trophy

The “Mike Denton Memorial Trophy” will be contested for this year at the Neddies Foreshore
Grounds on the 18th of May 2013 where Neddies will meet against University RUFC for this annual event. Neddies are the current holders of the trophy and will be looking for the right keep it within the club for yet another year.
For those new member to Nedlands RUFC “Mike Denton” (Dents as we all knew him) was one of ourtalented Premier Grade players who travelled with the Neddies Bali touring party to the
International 10’s Tournament in 2011 and tragically died from Methanol poisoning while over in Bali. He was an integral part of the very close knit Neddies family and will be remembered by us all.
This year will be a special event as Mike’s Mum Ruth Denton will also be in attendance. Ruth will be traveling over from Dunedin in NZ where Mike and his family are from. We will also be joined by Ruth’s sister Monica Gilbert and her son Sam from Melbourne.
They will be with us all for a long weekend and it will be a great occasion for all the Neddies community to remember Mike on the day and honour all the fond memories he left behind. I would like to call on all the Neddies community to turn out on the day and share with Ruth andfamily the camaraderie and ethos of our wonderful club.
