Club legends to dust off football boots for Wisbech Town’s ‘Goalbound’ fun day
WISBECH Town’s legends will blow the dust off their football boots for a run-out at the club’s ‘Goalbound’ fun day on Sunday.
The event, held for the first time last year, takes place in memory of Denis Harris, who was a loyal Fenmen fan.
Organiser John Keith said: “Denis was a long-standing supporter of the club and he used to write some amazing match reports.
“He would post them on the forum under the name ‘Goalbound’ - hence the name of the fun day.”
The event’s main attraction is a match between the Fenmen legends and a team of the club’s supporters, which will kick off at 2pm.

The winners of the Goalbound memorial match will be presented with the trophy by members of Mr Harris’ family.
Mr Keith said: “Last year we were all surprised at how many people came along. I should think there were 1,000 people - and this time we want double.”
Gates open at 11am on Sunday and entry is free. All money raised will go to the supporters’ club, which makes donations to Wisbech Town.
The fun day was originally due to take place in April but it had to be postponed due to wet weather.
