The festival is held in memoriam of Private Tom Sephton. Tom was a Soldier from Warrington who served in the 1st Battalion, The Mercian Regiment (1 MERCIAN). In 2010 Tom deployed on operations to Afghanistan. On 4th July Tom was seriously wounded in an explosion whilst on patrol, with great sadness Tom tragically succumbed to his injuries the following day.

For many years Tom played Rugby League for Crosfields Rugby League Club, and it was Tom’s ex-team mates who came up with the original idea for a charity fund raising Rugby League match to be held in memory of their friend. With the help of Tom’s family, his friends, his comrades in 1 MERCIAN and the Army Rugby League the match became a reality. Over the past 6 years the Tom Sephton Memorial Trophy has grown into without doubt the BIGGEST amateur Rugby League event in Britain with thousands of people attending and showing their support. In doing so the event has raised thousands of pounds for Armed Forces and local charities… it’s a fantastic day!

The event is, and will always remain, FREE TO ENTER with FREE PARKING! We invite you to please come along and show your support to our Armed Forces on this very special day… You will be made VERY WELCOME.
