Proud of Barnsley Awards

On behalf of everyone at Rockingham Colliery CC, we would like to pass on the very best of luck to Head Coach, Chris Schofield who has been nominated as a finalist as this evening’s Proud of Barnsley Awards.

Chris was shortlisted for the Triumph Over Adversity Award in recognition for his efforts when he completed the 3 in 3 Headway Challenge, which saw Chris complete 3 Triathlons in 3 Days all to raise money for the Headway Charity.

A Charity which is close to Chris and his family’s heart as they supported Chris after his own Head injury.

Good luck Scof.
