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.
