A number of Clubs have shown support for the special event being staged by Hethersett Hawks on Friday June 3rd, part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend. The aim is to honour Rod’s magnificent legacy by recreating an event he staged at the Silver Jubilee in 1977 and to do that we need 16 teams.

The event will be a standard 4-a-side (+1 reserve) format and all teams will be guaranteed a minimum of two matches. The Club’s sponsors – Yellow Brick Mortgages – have kindly agreed to sponsor the event and there will be an opportunity to socialise afterwards with some light refreshments at Hethersett Social Club. The Social Club have live music that night and guests are welcome to stay.

The closing date for entries has been set for Wednesday 18th May so the Club looks forward to hearing from Clubs before then that they want to pay their respects to Rod in this special way. Clubs who would like to enter more than one team should indicate this as there may be an opportunity.

Clubs wanting to take part should contact Club Chairman Mel Perkins MBE at by the 18th.
