Former Scotland captain Colin Hendry will feature in Keith football clash
KEITH'S Kynoch Park is expecting a good crowd for its Scotland versus England veterans’ football clash this Saturday.
Ex-Scotland captain Colin Hendry will return to the motherland for the home effort on Saturday, May 11, with kick-off at 2pm.
Keith’s famous footballing son featured in a game two years ago which celebrated the reunion after 40 years of a Keith boys’ league team.
The match will raise cash for Keith Cancer Link, which supports people in the area affected by cancer and cancer related illnesses.
Main organiser Willie Dick, who will be playing in goal, said: “The English lads are bringing a big squad north and seem desperate for revenge, but we hope to deny them again.”
Last year’s cross-border veterans’ clash drummed up £4600, to add to £3600 in 2017 when the Keith over-45s played Speyside opposition.
“It would be great to raise even more,” said Mr Dick.
An auction of football memorabilia will take place in the Plough Inn, Keith, at 6pm.
Former Highland League manager Gordon Winton will be in charge of the home effort, with his deputy, Jim Stables, also taking the field.
Entry will cost £3, £1 for children and OAPs.
