The John Adams Memorial Match

On Saturday 3rd September 2022 there will be a rugby match at Watcombe Bottom in memory of John Adams.

As I am sure you all know, John was a legendary servant to Ventnor RFC – witness his name scattered across our honours board in almost all of the positions within the club – and his recruiting of younger players made a definitive difference to the club in the early eighties.

The event will be held in support of the Mountbatten Hospice which cared for John so wonderfully in his last days back in October 2020.

There will be various fund-raising shenanigans including a mini-auction and a raffle etc..

John’s widow, Jeannette, will present the winner’s award, the John Adams Memorial Trophy which is being kindly donated by Steve Camm – one of John’s many partners in crime back in the eighties. John’s family will also be present including his son George – himself an erstwhile player for Ventnor RFC – and his daughter Lois.
