Driffield sports clubs pay tribute to The Queen

Sports clubs across Driffield and the Wolds joined the nation in paying their respects to The Queen.

Following news of Queen Elizabeth II’s death on Thursday 8th September, one issue up for debate was whether sporting events, both locally and nationally, should continue.

The FA took the decision to call a blanket cancellation of fixtures in England.

However, sports such as rugby union, cricket and hockey continued, with all three played across the Wolds at the weekend.

Players, coaches and match officials lined up for a minute’s silence in Queen Elizabeth II’s honour.

At Driffield Rugby Club, the traditional pre-game lunch was led by Rodney Hogg, who read out a statement of condolence from the RFU, whose views were echoed by all at Kelleythorpe.
