JOHN INGRAM MEMORIAL FUNDAY - The biggest off the pitch event of the year is the John Ingram Memorial Funday which will take place at Iveagh Park this Saturday 2nd June at 1pm.

This cross community event in some way gives something back to the community with something for all the family - outside of the football tournaments, there will be bouncy castles, face painting, sports games, etc, etc with an all day barbeque during the day.

Since it`s introduction, this event has been extremely well supported during the past three years with any donations on entry going to the Ronald McDonald House Fund, Oxford which the Gilmore family have benefited from in recent times. Come along and enjoy a free day out for all the family!
