FOUR former footballers from the glory years of Merseyside giants Liverpool and Everton will take centre stage at a charity event staged at Chester Broughton Hall Cricket Club this weekend.
Jimmy Case and Joey Jones of Liverpool and Everton’s Neville Southall and Kevin Sheedy are the speakers at the sportsmen’s lunch on Sunday, with the proceeds going to the Liverpool Unites charity. Liverpool Unites was set up following the tragic death of schoolboy Rhys Jones and supports community initiatives in the Merseyside region.
The sportsmen’s event will be hosted by Darren Griffiths and supported by comedian Frankie Allen.
Tickets at £30 include a two-course Sunday lunch with tables of 12 costing £300.
Case and Jones were European Cup and title winners with Liverpool while Sheedy and Southall were European Cup Winners Cup and title winners with Everton. They boast 36 major honours between them.
Tickets are available from Anthony on 07849 592532 or from Phil on 07710 166875.
Staff at MBNA in Chester are inviting seven-a-side teams to join a charity football tournament in a bid to help raise more than £2,000 for good causes.
Volunteers from the Chester-based company’s Risk Operations (RO) department have organised the competition to raise money for their two chosen charities, Macmillan Cancer Support and Brain Injury Rehabilitation & Development.
Tournament organiser and MBNA’s RO charity leader Michael Walsh said: “Every year we try different ideas to raise as much money as possible for charity, but this is the first time we’ve put on a football tournament and we’re really looking forward to getting together with teams from outside the company.”
The MBNA Charity Football Tournament takes place between 9am and 5pm on Saturday, July 28 at the Cheshire County Sports Club. Entry is £100 per team.
