Who is Tom Edwards?

Selby is a family-run rugby club and having the Tom and Edwards family as members made the club very rich. Tom Edwards captained Selby Rugby Union’s first XV.

Tom, a member of the club who attended Reid School in Drax, was adored by all ages.

“He was a terrific comrade and a brilliant rugby player, and he will be sorely missed.

Tom played over 150 games for our first XV and served as captain multiple times after passing through Wetherby’s juvenile division.

Tom achieved consecutive promotions from Yorkshire 4 to Yorkshire 2, winning the Yorkshire Silver Trophy with Wetherby in 2015.

He was a key member of the all-conquering team of 2014–15. We’ll never forget Tom’s catchphrase, “Let’s start getting fizzy now boys,” before every game.

“Tough, brave, caring and considerate”

Tom was described in four words by Brian Pearson Tom, Selby’s director of rugby, as “tough, brave, caring and considerate”.

Club chairman Doug Skelton said everyone at Selby RUFC adored Tom as a well-liked young man who always had time for others.

As Selby club captain, he is equally at ease interacting with some of the senior members as he rounds up the new, younger players and encourages them as they make their 1st XV debuts. He was a strong team member and leader.
