Team of Wisbech Town legends to play fans as part of Fenmen family fun day
A MATCH between a team of Wisbech Town legends and the club’s supporters is set to be the highlight of a family fun day at the Elgood’s Fenland Stadium on Sunday.
The main footballing attraction of the event at the Lynn Road ground will see Fenmen legends, including Mel Mattless, Jerry Lowrey and idolised striker Jackie Gallagher, dusting off their boots to help raise money for forces’ charity Help for Heroes.
Steve Appleby, current Wisbech Town manager, his assistant Chris Dear and reserve team boss Darren Edey are also set to take to the field to compete for the Goalbound Cup.
The trophy is played in memory of supporter Denis Harris who used to write comprehensive match reports on the club’s online forum under the username ‘Goalbound’. The match kicks-off at 2pm.
However, the football is just a small part of an action-packed day which will run from 11am-11pm and will be officially opened by the Mayor of Wisbech Jonathan Farmer at noon.
