Green Lane to host successive memorial game for much-loved coach Dave Peacock.

As many people will recall, we sadly lost our friend and local grassroots football legend Dave Peacock in 2022 and he is still hugely missed by us all at the club.
 

You may also recall that even whilst suffering with his own illness, Dave began a charity campaign, raising funds for an additional bladder scanner at James Cook hospital.

As part of that fund raising effort, the club arranged a memorial game in his honour between our Reserves team and the coaches from our junior teams, and thus the Dave Peacock Memorial Cup came to be.

On a great day last year the Reserves ran out 5-2 winners in front of a staggeringly large crowd and most importantly we raised in excess of £1,500 – which was incredible generosity from everyone in attendance.

It was such a success in fact that we decided to make it an annual event. So please do join us on Friday 29th December, 2pm. Bring your family, friends, colleagues and spread the word!

Let’s make it an amazing day, raise some much needed funds for charity and raise a glass in memory of Dave.
