The 7th Adam Dabell Annual Memorial Match was, once again, extremely well attended, particularly by the young people of the town.
The Sackville v Imberhorne ‘Old Boys’ match kicked off the evening with some very energetic and skillful football. I’m afraid I couldn’t tell you their final score but I wonder if they could either!
I know that they thoroughly enjoyed playing each other on the East Grinstead Town FC pitch under floodlights and would have loved to have played for a full 90 minutes.
The Sackville v Imberhorne 6th Form Match followed and these young people treated us to 90 minutes of excellent football.
The Mayor and Mayoress attended and the Mayor presented the Cup and Trophy to the winning team, Imberhorne, who won a hard fought game 2 – 0. The goalscorers for Imberhorne were Harvey Weddell and Josh Allard.
Dan Celani of Imberhorne said that both teams were, “A credit to your schools, parents and local community – well done”.
In presenting the Cup to the winners and medals to all players, the Mayor said that there were no losers and that the teams had treated us all to some very fine quality football – although his daughter, who is now a sixth-former at Sackville, would be a little disappointed with the final result!
Voluntary contributions on the night raised £300 for CRY.
