Letter: I was the rugby ref in the photo

Regarding the main picture captioned ‘Women’s rugby at Pocklington 2007’ in a recent Sporting Memories.

The picture is of Cambridge University Ladies Rugby. They were in the light blue hoops.

I can’t recall the opposition but I suspect it may have been Durham University or a team comprising of Durham and Pocklington Ladies. What I can tell you with absolute certainty is that I am the referee !

The Cambridge Ladies annual tour to Pocklington was always sponsored by the slightly controversial MEP Godfrey Bloom and was always a great PRUFC social event.

As rugby has a mantra of “What goes on tour, stays on tour”, I cannot add any further information !
