Story

Leslie Hall Memorial Cup Match

Killymoon Rangers Football Club over the years has taken many a knock and had many setbacks, none more so, than the news on the morning of Monday 11th January 2016 of the death of our Chairman Leslie Hall.

Leslie had been involved with the football club from its early beginnings in 1971 and how fitting it is that his time should end with him being chairman. If you cut Leslie after all the Man United red had run out he would have bled the blue of Killymoon. The club was in his blood he remained loyal to it apart from the times when his workload was too much or when he was recently looking after his elderly parents. When they passed on he was back doing what he loved so much and took over as Chairman.

Leslie was a straight talker and did not suffer fools easily and this was often reflected in some of the committee meetings that were often interesting to say the least. He had a desire to see the club own their own pitch and was instrumental in the club having as their home ground, the Blue Circle Sports ground which enabled the club to move forward to the intermediate standard of football. Saturday was a great day for Leslie if Man Utd and Killymoon both won.

Sadly Leslie passed away following a heart operation in January 2016, and it is for this reason we, as a club, have decided to host an annual Charity Match in memory of Leslie, to raise funds for both the Club he loved and a different charity organisation each year. The first of which was the cardiac unit, which cared for Leslie in his time of need.

Any donation, is very much appreciated, and a special thanks must go to everyone who is helping to organise, run, promote and participate in this Charity Match.

Thanks to all! We hope to make this a fun, yet competitive match, as that is exactly the sort of occasion Leslie would have wanted.
