A legendary fundraiser

Amid no shortage of big matches from a Cliftonville perspective, supporters are alerted to a special fundraiser being held at Solitude next weekend in memory of former player Jerry Thompson.

Less than 24 hours after the Reds host Linfield in a crucial Danske Bank Premiership clash, Over-35s teams from both Clubs will be rolling back the years in what promises to be a keenly-contested encounter.

Former Cliftonville favourites Marc Smyth, George McMullan, Barry Johnston and Stephen Small will be joined by fellow legends Chris and Ronan Scannell, with current Assistant Manager Declan O’Hara accompanying the likes of Ryan Catney, Kieran O’Connor, Eamonn Seydak and Barry Holland – with Peter Murray also included in the entourage from yesteryear.

Among the Blues’ representation will be Alan Blayney, Michael Gault, Chris Morgan, Winkie Murphy, Ivan Sproule, Matthew Tipton and Ryan McCann alongside a host of others from seasons gone by.

Kick-off is at 2pm and, while admission to the game is free, all donations will be gratefully received and passed on to Jerry’s young son, Thiago.
