STORE WARS to be held at Minehead

Superstore giants Tesco and Morrisons will lock horns on Sunday July 24th when staff from both stores will compete against each other at Minehead Football Club’s Irnham Road ground in the first of what is hoped to become an annual charity fund raising event.  The grudge match is the brain-child of Karen Sudron, a regular campaigner for Help for Heroes, who works at Tesco’s in Minehead. “Minehead Football Club seemed the logical people to host the event, and I’m really thrilled at how pro-active they are being in helping me organise things” said Karen.

Minehead chairman Brian Walder commented “We were pleased to be asked and there couldn’t be a more relevant charity to get behind at the moment. I can imagine the match catching the imagination of West Somerset’s public. This is not just a Sunday kick about, this is two superstores slugging it out and the bragging rights will be immense!

Minehead Town Council, who own the Recreation Ground where Minehead AFC’s home matches are played, have agreed that their historical “Football Challenge Trophy” can be re-established and presented to the winners. It is hoped that the Mayor of Minehead will present the cup to the winning side and that “STORE WARS” will become an annual event.







Two of the 1980’s best known football legends visit West Somerset on Good Friday (2nd April) for an event being staged by Minehead AFC. “CALLING ALL REDS” will attract followers of not only Manchester United and Liverpool but anyone who wants to hear the memorable true to life stories from a pair of world renowned football celebrity characters.

NORMAN WHITESIDE was discovered by Bob Bishop, the Ulster scout who introduced George Best to Manchester United, and in 1982 broke Pele’s record as the youngest player to play in a World Cup when he represented Northern Ireland at España 82. He played for Manchester United (273 appearances, 66 goals) and Everton, before his career was ended by injury at the age of 26. He won the FA Cup twice during his time at Manchester United, in 1983 and in 1985, when he scored the winning goal against Everton.

JAN MOLBY was a vital member of Liverpool’s successful 1980’s side, with possibly his most memorable game being his Man of the Match performance in the first-ever all Merseyside FA Cup Final (85-86) when his display helped inspire his team back from a 1-0 deficit to win the cup and claim the double. Born in Kolding in Denmark, Molby, dubbed “the great dane” by the scousers, represented his country on 33 occasions, and is often still referred to as one of English Football’s greatest imports. As well as being regarded as Liverpool’s finest ever passer of the ball, “big Jan” holds the remarkable record of scoring from 42 of his 45 penalty kicks for the Merseyside “Reds”.

Both celebrities are highly accomplished speakers on the legends circuit, and are known for their amusing adaptations of incidents from their colourful careers. The event which is being held at Mambo’s on the Seafront in Minehead, runs from 7 till 12 midnight, and includes dinner, a Sporting Memorabilia Auction and a Professional Compere along with other fun and games.
