Memorial Tournament 2010
May 22nd 2010 - Lyndon House Playing Fields
sun shone all day on the sixth Dave Smith Memorial Tournament!!!!!
of meticulous planning, a team of over 30 volunteers put in a hard shift
from the crack of dawn until the early evening, as over 60 teams from across
the county competed for honours, the estimated attendance for the day was in
excess of 1500.
On behalf of Great
Harwood Rovers, Club Chairman Mark Pickup, extended thanks to all spectators
and players, but especially the volunteers who worked tirelessly behind the
scenes, including St John Ambulance, and the dozen Referees who officiated.
He also gave special thanks to Dale McVarish of B and M Builders who
provided material support on the day. He commented that his "old mate Dave
would have been proud of the day's proceedings and would be looking down
from above with a broad smile on his boat race".
Players from 20 teams
received a memento of the day in the "non-competitive" under 7s and 8s.
