Charity Football Match – Balcombe FC v Lancing Old Boys FC 2011

The second Balcombe FC v Lancing Old Boys FC Charity Shield Football match was a great success and managed to raise just over £950 for JHHHT. Lancing Old Boys FC won 3 v 2.

A huge thank you must go to Balcombe FC for their kind hospitality, Chris Williams and Neil Hunsworth for all their efforts in organising the teams, 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, Marilyn, John, Liz, Viv, Clive, Terry and Chris again for compering the raffle.

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.


The man of the match for Lancing Old Boys was Duncan Wilks and the man of the match for Balcombe was KevinMoudoumou.
