35th Ensign Cup set for Saturday

Annual match at Parkinson to raise funds for youth rugby

A longstanding Kelowna sports fundraising tradition is back for its 35th year.

The annual Ensign Cup benefit rugby game is set for this Saturday, 1 p.m. at the Parkinson fields.

The Kelowna Crows over 30s will take on the under 30s in an intrasquad game, with the proceeds going to youth rugby.

There will be a barbecue following the game at the cricket clubhouse.

The Ensign Cup has been held every year since 1983 in recognition of Rusty Ensign who was rendered a paraplegic after suffering an injury on the rugby pitch.
