There’s a very special football match today (Sunday 13th May 2018) at Walsall Wood’s Oak Park ground in memory of Pelsall lad Reagan Asbury who tragically lost his life following disorder after a boxing match event at Walsall Town Hall last October.
The match – called the Asbury Cup in Reagan’s memory – is between his friends, Reagan FC and Pelsall United FC and is intended as a light hearted, fun match in honour of a fondly remembered and sadly missed young lad.
The match will be just £1 to enter, with kids getting in free, and kicks off at 2pm. There will be refreshments and a bar, open all day of course – a bouncy castle for the kids – half time crossbar challenge and loads of other fun and games that Reagan would have loved.
It’s all in aid of the Ben Kinsella Trust to whom all proceeds will be donated – they’re a great charity who are working to halt knife crime and deserve out support.
So what’s not to love? Why not get down there and cheer the teams on? Best wishes to everyone involved – it’s nice to see something positive come out of tragedy.
If you pop down, why not take a few pictures and tell us about it? Comment here or mail me: BrownhilsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
in a brief conversation with one of the organisers of this wonderful event I was thrilled to learn of the success…and the sum raised… for the charity
Very well done, all involved
