Mick Divaney - RIP

Popular Bispham Hotel landlord Mick Divaney died suddenly two years ago at the age of 57 after contracting Legionella whilst on a break in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt with his wife Sue. Each year since then players with a connection to the popular Bispham pub get together to play a football match in his memory.  The game was played this morning and Fyldesport were invited to attend.  Here are a few pictures from the first half.

It was supposed to be the old uns versus the young uns but there were few under 35

Today's referee was Peter Lambe

We're away.  A hidden venue at the back of the Squirrel Pub – not many lines and the mower is a stranger to it.

Danced around three defenders and coolly finished

The Reds pull one back to make it 2-1 with a great first time finish into the top corner.

Afterwards it was back to the Pub for sandwiches and beer.  Well done lads – a fitting tribute
