CASTERTON, Sedbergh Preparatory School will hold a XV Veterans rugby match this year, supported by former Sedbergh School pupil and Gloucester and England player James Simpson-Daniel.

This follows an inaugural ‘Get Your Boots On’ match at a school near York last year, an event which raised more than £20,000 for the Ryedale Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The over-40s event, which was watched by about 500 people and received international as well as national coverage, was organised by Marcus and Nina Aldrich.

The game at Casterton Sedbergh Preparatory School will take place on Sunday March 2 at 2pm and support the work of MS-UK.

The event will be family friendly, with refreshments available. To sign up, go to or email XV Veterans founder Marcus Aldrich at
