Sporty dads enjoy reunion football match

An active group of dads ground out a 3-3 draw when they played in a reunion football match on Saturday.

Richard Phillips was joined by 24 friends, all from the Furze Platt area, as they travelled to Munster in France.

They played against Richard's former team mates from the IECS business school football team who he played for while studying there for a year in 1983.

"We experienced a weekend of cross border camaraderie, drinking, eating and plenty of singing in both English and French," said Richard, of Courthouse Road.

Despite the 51-year-old suffering a black eye during the match, he said he had successfully managed to rekindle old friendships and added discussions had begun about organising a similar event in the future.
