Hi

as some of you may have seen on a thread a while ago there is a plan to have a tribute football match for our lost brother Shaun McKinley on Hogmanay with participants from the bounce, St Patricks branch and Shaun's friends and family, it will also be a fundraiser for a cause of Big G's choice with every player making a donation plus bucket collections for spectators.

any other suggestions or help for fundraising such as a raffle would be welcome

The provisional venue is Leith Links at 2pm, the format will depend on numbers but it will either be a straightforward match or a mini tournament, I will arrange all equipment, refreshments etc.

the plan after will be to retire to the Bottom Shop for a pint or two

if interested in playing or coming along just reply to the thread

I'll pass on playing, but have sent a few emails around tonight for some prizes towards the raffle - I'll be in touch.

In terms of lending a helping hand in general to organise, count me in.

How shite is tolerable in terms of playing ability? I was alright in my time, but I'm now a) 43, b) spectacularly unfit, and c) have dodgy hamstrings/calves.

Just a kickabout really so don't worry about fitness.

Come along to street soccer for a runabout in the meantime if you want, got sessions on every day.

I’m never one to turn down a game of footy as you know Robbie. I didn’t know Shaun but was moved by his story. I’m happy to get involved but wouldn’t like to take the place of someone who is more deserving. Let me know how you get on with numbers and we can take it from there.
