Police in Rotherham and Howard Webb SCORCHED at Rawmarsh Comprehensive

November 20, 2012, 1:42 pm

International and premiership football referee and Rotherham man, Howard Webb, attended Rawmarsh Comprehensive School to present years nine and ten with individual and school trophies from the inaugural SCORCH football tournament. The football tournament was organised by CB Leisure from funding provided by South Yorkshire Police and Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council and involved children from Wath, Pope Pius, Swinton and Rawmarsh Comprehensives.

The tournament took place on the evenings over the weekend from 2 November to 5 November, 2012 at Dearne Valley College andwas a huge success with approximately 350 people visiting the events both to play and support the teams. Rawmarsh were successful in two year age groups and were lucky enough to receive their trophies on the day from Howard who also signed autographs and answered questions posed by the children involved.

Inspector David White of the Rotherham North Safer Neighbourhood Team said “The idea of the tournament came from Colin Broadhurst of CB Leisure in Rotherham.  The aim of the tournament is to encourage children into sport and act in a positive, well behaved manner during a period when many children are seen as causing issues. Colin is a respected UEFA B Coach who is active in the community training children to play football.

I am grateful to him for organising the event and to be lucky enough to get Howard Webb for the Rawmarsh presentation was a major plus as he connected with the children in a way many others could not. The vision for the future is to spread this across Rotherham and further improve our connections within the community.”
