Some Vets Players ay my club (Derby RFC) have been involved with the production of a Charity single (see below words and link) as part of the Wooden Spoon Society. Please follow the link, read some more information, listen to the trailer and if you feel it is something you would like to support, download the single or donate another way....

THE WOODEN Spoon Veterans rugby squad has recorded a moving rendition of The Green Fields of France, the noted anti-war song, as a Christmas charity single. The 40-strong squad first performed the song whilst on tour at the Tournoi Rugby De L’Armistice in Compiègne on 11 November 2018. The tournament commemorated the centenary of the signing of the 1918 Armistice which ended the bloodshed of the First World War. The tour was led by Wooden Spoon Ambassadors, and British and Irish Lions legends, John Taylor and Fergus Slattery.

The Armistice Centenary Rugby Tribute was organised by Francourt Events and Rugby Club Compiegne as part of the World Rugby Memorial Project in conjunction with the City of Compiegne. The commemoration included a formal presentation dinner on Saturday evening attended by over 400 officials, dignitaries and players of all ages. The veteran teams were in fine voice at the dinner and exchanged traditional rugby songs embodying the spirit of rugby and remembrance. An impromptu performance of The Green Fields of France, by Wooden Spoon’s very own Sean Eley silenced the room, brought tears to everyone’s eyes and raised everyone to their feet for a standing ovation!
