Maybush Vs Fox Football

Wednesday 18th May 2016 saw the Maybush take on the Fox at football. A great mix of people in both teams from those who play regularly to those that could barely stand whilst trying to run. Played in three sessions of half hour each, we took to the main pitch at ITFC. The ground was organised thanks to the work of Matt Clarke who works for the football club.

It has been said that the true gravity of playing on ITFC’s pitch was lost on me, but for those who regularly attend the ground, it was a magical experience. Unfortunately the roar of the crowd was limited to the voices of about 25 spectators, but we appreciated all of their support.

The shirts were kindly supplied by Deben Inns and made it a great spectacle. The Maybush team sported the home kit whilst the away kit adorned the Fox players. Everyone got to play thanks to the managers operating a rolling substitution process.

After the game, Deben Inns hosted a buffet in the Maybush for the participants, so thanks for the great support from Steve and Lou

The match raised around £800 for the ‘Sir Bobby Robson memorial fund’ and one of the charities supported by our late friend Bobby Bullard. group
