Benny Lee receives an RFU Volunteer Award from Derek Watkins.

Benny passed away in New Zealand last month at the age of 80. He played for various Borough teams - mainly the Juggers - between 1979 and 2008, and created history in September 2008 when turning out for Borough on his 70th birthday to become the oldest player ever to represent the club. The game is between the Juggers and an Allcomers XV.
