Little Common Football Club is holding the Ken Cherry Memorial Event on Sunday August 21.

The event is being held to remember club founder Ken Cherry, who was still chairman at the time of his sudden passing in January, and celebrate Common’s 50th anniversary.

Two football matches will be played on the day at Little Common Recreation Ground - a veterans’ match at 1pm followed by an under-36s game at 3pm.

All four teams will be made up of past and present Common players, and proceeds from the day will go towards a memorial bench for Ken. As well as the football, there will be food, a bar, a raffle and bouncy castle.

Anyone who has played for or been involved with the club for the past 50 years is welcome to attend and the club is hoping to see as many people in attendance as possible.

Ken set up Little Common FC back in 1966 and was very much the driving force behind its rise to where it is today as a senior level club with a thriving youth section, first class clubhouse, floodlights and spectator seating.
