Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As you are no doubt aware, we sadly lost my Father to a short battle with cancer in September 2015. As a way of raising money for Cancer Research, following the successful Whites versus Reds match last year in which we raised a staggering £641, we're having another match on May 20th at Linton Village College AT 2pm (1pm meet to warm-up).

So this time out, we will be playing for silverware - The Alan Gribble Trophy, to be precise! The teams will comprise of whites versus reds as they were last year, with the victors claiming the cup at the end!

It doesn't matter how many people want to play - it can be more than 11-a-side and we can rotate as frequently as we want. I also propose no linesman and no limit as to how many people are on the field at any given time, just come off when you feel you need a quick breather. We can also rotate goalkeepers. I have booked the same pitch as last time out. And remember, it's just for fun! 

For anyone who would like to take part in the fundraising but are unable to do so, I also want to host a charity bake sale as that was also a roaring success last year.

To sign up to play on the day - please find the link below:

The donation I ask of everyone who takes part is just £5. Even if you can't make it that day then please feel free to donate.

This will be a great opportunity to raise money to help combat one of the worst diseases in the world today. As we are all-too-aware, it's never easy when you lose a loved one, which is why I want to do my bit and hope you'd like to do yours too. 

This will be another fantastic way to raise funds for a worthy cause and also have a great afternoon in the process. 

If you know of anyone else who would like to take part, then please let me know and add them to the event. As I said earlier I will keep this page flowing with updates as and when I have any.

I really hope you can make it and help make this event a fun and successful one.
