This annual fixture was almost cancelled due to the frozen pitches at Castle Dyke but despite the freezing wind and snow the game went ahead.

The old boys started very well and gained an early two goal lead. Mr Morton made a brief cameo performance for the 1st XI – bending a free kick into the top corner. The superior fitness of the current 1st XI showed in the second half and the final score was 4-2 to the 1st XI.

It was wonderful to see so many of the old boys again and the fixture was played in a great spirit by all. No doubt the old boys will return next year to try and win back the trophy!
