Charity football match for Manchester Attack victims

Rydal Penrhos staff are going up against Llandudno FC Legends on Friday, 16th June

Excitement is building ahead of a special charity football match between staff and legends of a Welsh Premier League side.

Staff members at Rydal Penrhos will be facing Llandudno FC Legends on Friday, 16th June at the Giant Hospitality Stadium, and the clash is set to kick-off at 7.45 p.m.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Penny Appeal, who are raising money for the victims and those affected by the Manchester Terror Attack.

The school will be sending a strong squad to compete with the legendary figures, with the squad including an array of talent including Nick Sissons, Darren Baker, Dean Jones, Paul Sanders and Jamie Joyce.

Defender Stephen O’Neill will be one of the key figures for the Rydal Penrhos side, while Craig Stock will be hoping to be amongst the goals once again following his two-goal outing in the recent Leavers’ contest.

There will be plenty of work rate courtesy of Andrew Price, Pete Lavery and Jim Lewis, with WPL referee Mark Petch sure to see some familiar faces on the opposition when he takes the field in a playing capacity.

Talented former pupil Harvey Holmes will be lending his support to the encounter, with current Upper Sixth trio of Jack Sissons, Euan Humphreys and Tom McCloskey also included.

This is probably the best squad we have assembled, and I am delighted that so many are giving up their time to help raise as much money as possible for an extremely worthy cause - Communications Assistant Dean Jones

Communications Assistant Dean Jones, who has organised the event in association with Llandudno FC, said: “This is probably the best squad we have assembled, and I am delighted that so many are giving up their time to help raise as much money as possible for an extremely worthy cause.

“Many thanks also go to Sam Williams at Llandudno for all his help in arranging the fixture, which we hope will be a huge success.”

Anyone wishing to donate can do so by visiting the contest’s Just Giving page.
