The game will pit a team of over 30’s against the under 30’s. Brian’s three sons are involved.

Brian’s sister-in-law, Gail Cowan, said: “There are lots of people going to put their football boots on so it’s a roll on game, where everyone will get a chance to get on the field. We are also doing a raffle and an auction, as shops/businesses are contributing towards it.”

Donations welcome.
