Blackpool FC veterans to star in local Charity match

Message from Steve Ryan:  Every year a Charity football match is played to raise funds for epilepsy research in memory of two local girls who died from seizures. This year's game will be played at the ground of AFC Blackpool on Friday November 6th with a 7.30pm kick off.  This will be the fifth anniversary of the Memorial Shield and is contested between ex professionals from Blackpool FC  and a Fylde XI which consists of young and upcoming talent from the local area.  The Blackpool FC team is said to include Phil Clarkson, Andy Preece, Colin Hendry, Junior Bent, Steve Thompson, Micky Mellon and many more.  The team will be managed by ex Pool favourite Mike Davies. The presentations will be made by Blackpool FC manager Ian Holloway.  Raffle prizes and a brass band are also planned.
