The friends and family of Sam Jones are to host a football tournament in Sam's memory
Wythenshawe Town will have an XI made up of present and past players at the event, which is sure to be a great occasion in Sam's memory.
Supporters will also get the chance to pull on the Town shirt and get themselves an appearance. For £10 a ticket, supporters can enter the draw to play in the Town side on the day. The only way to get a ticket into this draw is from the club at the home games against Altrincham and Warrington Town. Tickets will be available next to the bar on these days. The draw will be made after the Warrington Town game. All proceeds will go to the funds raised on the day.
The friends and family have asked for the following to be released:
As the anniversary of Sam’s passing is coming up we wanted to get everyone together for a day filled with football, entertainment and fun.
So we have put together a football tournament at Hyde United on the 24th July 2022 with 6 teams that had links to Sam alongside a bouncy castle, face painting and other activities for everyone to enjoy. There will be food and drinks available, including a Waffle station and Ice cream van.
We will also be running a raffle with, hopefully, lots of prizes donated from local businesses so please please get in touch if you would like to donate anything. (Balloons or Cake vouchers, PT sessions, Massage or Yoga voucher, that kind of thing)
All profits will be donated to UKeff, a charity that Sam worked with.
Tickets are £3 on the gate with kick off at 12 o’clock so please get there at 11.30 to get a spot. We hope you can make it to enjoy a family day out, watch some decent games of football but most of all, to celebrate the life of Sam who we miss every day!
