Between 1991-2006, I was the manager of a local Sunday League team, Kingston Athletic.
Every year since the club folded, the ex-players have got together for an annual reunion match.
A chance for old friends to catch up, take the mickey out of each other, and convince ourselves we’re not getting older as we ‘huff and puff’ round the pitch for 90 minutes (well most of us last about 15 minutes before realising we didn’t have untapped, hidden reserves of energy 😂😂😂)
For the past two years, the annual reunion match has also become a fundraising event for our charity with all the ex-players donating a ‘match fee’ (whatever amount they choose) plus money raised from the sale of hot dogs, burgers, etc.
The last two reunion matches have raised a combined total of £740.00!!!
I am therefore delighted to announce that next year’s reunion match is BOOKED!!
Sunday 5th July 2020 at 12.00 at Len Forge Centre, the Kingston ‘Legends’ will again put on a display of footballing skill not seen outside the Etihad Stadium😉
We will be making this match the biggest, best ever and aim to encourage much more people along
Watch this space for more announcements about the day.
Priorities sorted – the ice cream van is already booked 😁😁😁
