The inaugural Balcombe FC v Lancing Old Boys FC Charity Shield Football match was a great success and managed to raise just under £1,000 for JHHHT.
A huge thank you must go to Balcombe FC for their kind hospitality, Mike Hunsworth for his outstanding reffing and to all of those who put in such hard work in helping to prepare and arrange the tea and the raffle, in particular Carolyn, Sue, Katie, Amy, Tandy, Liz, Viv, Clive and Terry.
Please see the excellent photos of the day taken by Sammy Naik and Michael Kenward via the following links:
An eloquent match report (predominantly written) by Richard “Mad Dog” Spink is set out below. He was the tall blond centre back. Any complaints – please make them directly to him.
Please put Saturday 20 August 2011 in your diaries for next year’s fixture!
