Trib­ute game for a leg­end

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Sport -

Sam North­east is among a host of Kent crick­eters who will don foot­ball boots to play in a char­ity match to hon­our Folke­stone FC leg­end John Tred­well later this month. Tred­well, who died last year, chalked up more than 1,000 ap­pear­ances for the old Folke­stone Town be­tween 1957 and 1989 and the me­mo­rial match has been organised by his son, Kent crick­eter James, in con­junc­tion with In­victa boss Neil Cu­g­ley. The game takes place at the Ful­licks Sta­dium on Sun­day, Novem­ber 19 (noon kick-off) and will see a Tred­ders All-star Kent XI take on a Folke­stone Se­lect XI, drawn largely from play­ers who have played un­der Cu­g­ley. North­east is ex­pected to be joined by county team-mates Tred­well, Daniel Bel­lDrum­mond, Alex Blake, Adam Ri­ley and Matt Hunn, with former pro foot­ballers Andy Hessen­thaler, Ian Hen­don, Nicky Southall and Roland Edge help­ing to bol­ster the ranks. Among those lined up to play for the op­po­si­tion are Mo Mun­den, Tim Dixon, Jeff Ross, Dave Arter, James Dry­den, Paul Cham­bers and Tommy War­rilow. Ad­mis­sion is free, although do­na­tions will be taken. There will also be a raf­fle, pro­ceeds be­ing shared be­tween the char­i­ties sup­ported by James Tred­well dur­ing his tes­ti­mo­nial sea­son – Crohn’s and Coli­tis UK and the PCA Benev­o­lent Fund. James is keen to hear from any­one who played with or un­der his fa­ther at Folke­stone. Email kirsty@ tred­dytes­ti­mo­nial2017.co.uk
