A reunion to top them all

A HUGE reunion for anyone and everyone who has ever played a part in the Alfreton and District Sunday Football League is being held later this year.

Organised by former Archway ‘84 goalkeeper and Tsar group of companies proprietor Andy Smithurst, a 2011 Grand Reunion event is being staged at Lumb Farm on the outskirts of Ripley on Sunday, June 12.

Every single player, club and match official, sponsors and even supporters who have been involved in any capacity since the league was first formed in 1968 are invited and welcome to attend what is hoped will be the reunion to top all reunions.

The emphasis of event will be a fun day with families encouraged and welcome to attend as there will be something for everyone.

The event will be a great chance to meet up and talk football with former team-mates and even opponents and referees!

Included on the day - which will run from 2pm to 10.30pm - will be a hog roast, barbecue, bouncy castle and other rides for children, licensed bar throughout and fund raising events in aid of local charities with some excellent prizes available.

The organiser is also inviting everyone who is attending to email in to reunion@tsargroup.co.uk and confirm their name, team(s) played for and the approximate era if known.

These details will be added to an ‘attending list’ which will be continually updated until the day of the event so everyone can look and see who will be there. The ‘Who is attending’ page can be viewed on the official reunion website at: www.tsargroup.co.uk/page5.htm

The website also includes a Forum and Guest Book for former players and officials to leave messages and catch up with each other before the big day.

All enquiries about the event can be directed to organiser Andy Smithurst on 07875 468 504 or by emailing him at: reunion@tsargroup.co.uk
