Kieran FEST 2013

Kieran's Memorial Match

Saturday 7 Sep 2013 2pm-5pm
Stockport Sports, Lambeth Grove, Woodley, Stockport SK6 1QX
Kieran's old FC Bluestar team were devastated when he was killed. They all came to the funeral and shared their memories of their friend and team mate. But they wanted to do something fitting to remember him - an annual Kieran's Memorial Match in his memory.
His team mates organised the whole event themselves and got generous sponsorship of a free pitch from Life Leisure who run the Stockport Sports Village.
They played FC Bluestar's U17s Cosmos in a skilful, free flowing game that Kieran would have loved. It ended 5-2 to Kieran's team but game was played in a lovely spirit that was a fitting tribute. We'll be doing it again next year, and every year.
