Memorial Match For Jeremy Biggs

1 week ago By Richard Curtis

Stamford AFC and Blackstones FC have jointly announced that a memorial match to celebrate the life of Mr UCL Jeremy Biggs.

Which will take place as a pre-season friendly between the two sides in early July.

Jeremy sadly passed away suddenly in December 2016, He was closely associated with both Clubs having been Club secretary for the Daniels, a regular at Blackstones, and predominately his beloved United Counties League, where he was press officer and UCL registration Director.

Jeremy’s wealth of local football knowledge will probably never be repeated, he visited every UCL Club every season, spending a lot of time at Blackstones FC.

Paul Pepper Commercial Manager at Stamford AFC commented. We’ve been thinking of a fitting way to celebrate Jeremy’s involvement with the two biggest Clubs in the town for some time now.

On a recent visit to Blackstones, myself and Graham Drury first team Manager spoke with officials there to see if we could come up with an idea. I know Jeremy would have loved to see a contest between us.

Graham has very kindly donated a Silver Salver that hopefully will be contested by both Clubs for many years to come. We’ve always tried to include a pre-season friendly between the Clubs Paul said, this will just add a bit of edge to the match from now on.

Paul Downs Commercial Manager at Blackstones FC agreed, it will be a fitting way of getting the two clubs together for Jeremy “ I hope the town come out in force to support this ongoing match in Jeremy Biggs memory. He did so much for local football “

Both Clubs have agreed that a donation to Jeremy’s families chosen Charity The British Heart Foundation will be made from proceeds of the match.

The match will be held at Blackstones FC’s ground on Thursday 5th July kick off 7.45pm
