Rugby club to host match in memory of PC Dave Phillips
by Tom Martin

FIRWOOD Waterloo Rugby Club will play host to a charity game in memory of murdered police officer Dave Phillips.

The British Police Rugby team will take on the British Fire and Rescue Service at the Waterloo stadium on Wednesday, January 27.

The match is in aid of the PC Dave Phillips Memorial Fund which was set-up following his death in October when he was the victim of a hit-and-run in Wallasey.

George Moore, Director of Firwood Waterloo Rugby Club added: “Firwood Waterloo Rugby club are honoured to be hosting the rugby match between the British Police and Fire and Rescue service in memory of PC David Philips and to have the opportunity to show our support for his family. We have members in the emergency services and the event will allow us all to remember a hero and recognise those who are putting their lives at risk every day to protect our community.”

Peter Singleton, Chair of Merseyside Police Federation, said: “On behalf of Dave’s family, friends and colleagues, I would like to thank everyone at British Police Rugby, British Fire and Rescue and Firwood Waterloo Rugby Club for organising this game.

”The support shown by everyone, not only within the police family, but from our emergency service colleagues, and not least the public, has been quite incredible and truly humbling.

“I am sure the event will be fantastic and everyone who attends will have an enjoyable night. Finally, I am sure the whole occasion will be a fitting tribute to remember an exceptional police officer, and a loving and much missed husband, father, son and brother.”

The match is set to start at 6pm and tickets can be bought from Firwood Waterloo Rugby Club before or on the day for £5.
