On Saturday 3rd August at Thatto Heath Crusaders, St Helens, The Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF) will once again attempt to enter the Guinness Book of World Records by completing the most consecutive amount of Rugby Passes which currently stands at 280.
The Accord Legal Services World Record Attempt to make the most consecutive passes is a FUNdraising event for SPF and Thatto Heath Chairman Mike Denning and his friend Paul Pugh who will be taking part in the 10 year anniversary of Challenge Wembley this August.
Mike Denning said "It is with great pleasure to announce this World Record Attempt of consecutive Rugby Passes. A special thank you to St Helens Council Chief Executive Mike Palin for the idea. This is not going to be easy. There are rules and criteria that we must follow to become World Record Holders. A team from St Helens Council took part in a rugby tournament at Twickenham a few years ago and sadly failed, so we are not taking anything for granted.''
''We require 281 people to sign up to break the current record of 280. Everyone who signs up must be able to pass and catch a rugby ball from a distance of 5 metres. This must be done within 5 seconds of each pass.
We hope that all the rugby league community will get together to set a new world record and continue Steve Prescott MBE legacy. I would personally like to thank Sarah Williams from Accord Legal Services for their fantastic continued support of the Steve Prescott Foundation."
The record attempt will take place at 1600 after the Thatto Heath Crusaders v Rochdale Mayfield game. There will be entertainment or all the family to coincide with the WR Attempt.
To become a World Record Breaker the Entry Fee is a DONATION to the SPF on the day.
*If we do not have 281 participants to take part the WR attempt will not be able to go ahead*
