THE Stan Turner testimonial match between Gloucester Old Boys and Gloucester Combination Veterans ended in a 35-35 draw.
The game, played as a thankyou to club stalwart Turner for all he has done for the club over the past 45 years, was hard fought.
Committe member Michael Brabham said the game was played in a “barbarian style”, as both sides looked to throw the ball around, but neither could clinch the entertaining game.
Turner has captained the first, second and third XVs and has been fixture secretary, treasurer, groundsman, barman and vice-chairman. He is now a committee member.
