Are proud to announce a

Celebration Dinner

To commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the

Sam Doble Memorial Match

On Thursday 23rd November 2017

In the Reddings Suite at

This famous match was played at The Reddings on Sunday 27th November 1977 to raise funds for the family of the great Moseley and England Full Back Sam Doble, following his untimely death that year from lymphatic cancer at the age of 33.

The match was between Moseley, captained by Dave Warren and unbeaten until that day, and the ‘International Rugby Writers’ Invitation Side’, in reality, a full British & Irish Lions side.
