St Helens winger Ade Gardner will play for Cumbria in the Garry Purdham memorial game against England at Whitehaven's Recreation Ground on Sunday, October 3.

The Barrow-born Gardner, whose last appearance for England was in the 2008 World Cup, has thrown his weight behind the fixture, which is being held to support the family of Garry Purdham, who lost his life in the Cumbria shooting tragedy earlier this year.

"It's a privilege to represent your county but it's an even bigger honour to represent the Purdham family and a community that has been through a lot in the past 12 months," said Gardner

Good gesture from Ade to play for them, but this shows that Gardner's Test career is over.

Why, because he's playing for his County against England in a Charity match ?

Are you seriously using this to score points? Thats utterly pathetic and a disgrace if your aim was to try a wind up using this story.

Truly a most ridiculous assertion.

You should at least try to grow up a bit.

No I was just stating that Gardner obviously thinks he has zilch chance of making the England squad.

It's good that a SL player like him has put his hand up to play in an 'extra' game like this as most of them decide that they want a break after the season ends.

There must be some mistake, Ben is surely now too glamorous to represent Cumbria, I mean how will the locals react to seeing him carrying his Prada kit bag and playing in his Jimmy Choo boots tongue.gif

It's ok, his fellow glamour puss John Clarke is also included to keep him company and maintain a sense of decorum.

I can't believe Clarke has been given permission to play for Cumbria, after all he was born in Wigan!

I believe Tony Smith could be coming out of retirement for Cumbria as he once lived above a chippy in Workington!! Now thats Glam! biggrin.gif

John Clarke's mam is from West Cumbria so he has Cumbrian blood in him.

As for TS, ask him about the escapades we used to get up to in the glamourous 'bottom end' pubs of Workington and watch him blush biggrin.gif

I'd be saddened yet understanding if any of these volunteers were to turn out in the Grand Final.

If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

On Odsal Top baht 'at.
