The Moody Cows return to Dubai

27 November 2009

  • Moody Cows will compete in the Dubai Emirates Rugby 7s again
  • The invitational side will honour founding member Kay Booker

Crowd favourites ‘The Moody Cows’ are in the hunt for the Dubai Emirates Rugby 7s winners trophy to honour the memory of close friend Kay Booker and raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Kay, 39, who sadly lost her brave battle against cancer in July of this year, was one of the founding members of The Moody Cows and managed the 2004 team in Dubai where the girls were pipped at the post by a fully capped team of international players.

The Moody Cows are an international invitational women's 7’s team, comprising players from a number of high profile clubs including Rosslyn Park, Saracens and Richmond.

Moody Cows Captain, Lou Micklewright said: “This tournament is really important to the team for two reasons; it helps promote women’s rugby on an international stage and it marks our whole hearted determination to raise money in memory of our very dear friend and team member Kay Booker.”

Not only are The Moody Cows renowned at tournaments for their success on the field, they are also well known for their very unique brand.  This year dedicated to raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, the team and its herd of supporters will don Friesian print tournament shirts.

Mark Pamplin, Kay’s husband and an avid Moody Cow supporter added, “Macmillan Cancer Support played a role in supporting Kay during her illness.  With one in three people now being diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives; many more individuals are turning to the charity for support.  It is a fitting tribute to Kay that so many of her friends and family are actively using her passion for rugby to raise donations for a charity close to her heart.”
