Martyn Bowden can cover all 3 positions in the front row and will be part of the Scotty’s Little Soldiers Team taking on the Charity World Record Rugby Attempt on the 12th – 13th May 2017.
I am the player coach of the Meat Machine RFC, a charity rugby team based in the midlands who support Scottys Little Soldiers and several other charities. We are an invitational team and after having Matt from the Scottys team play for us and talking to him I knew I wanted to get more involved…so I asked if I could play.
My brother is in the RAF as was my dad, and most of my best friends are current/ex army. If something ever happened to them while serving I would want there children to be happy, and thats what Scottys Little Soldiers do…they bring happiness back to kids who have suffered that unbearable loss.
Also a personal challenge and playing rugby since a small boy, what bigger way to put yourself to the test on a rugby pitch? Its the ultimate test in my opinion and I can’t think of any better driving force to take it on than supporting Scottys!
