Scorpions to raise more funds for Jordan Jevons

South Wales Scorpions have confirmed that one pound for every match ticket sold this weekend will be donated to the appeal to help local rugby player Jordan Jevons.

Jevons had to have half of a leg amputated recently, after suffering bone cancer.

He played rugby league for the Valley Cougars as well as rugby union for Treharris Phoenix.

A special dual-code match between the teams took place at the weekend as part of the fundraising effort for the player.

Scorpions tangle with Newcastle Thunder in League 1 this Sunday at Mountain Ash RFC.

The funds raised will be used to obtain a prosthetic leg for Jevons.

“We’re delighted to be helping Jordan in this way,” said Scorpions coach Mike Grady.

“As it’s our last game of the season, hopefully we’ll have a decent crowd so can I plead everyone to buy in advance so we can donate a lot of money to help Jordan.”
