York City legends take on Barnsley FC Fit Reds Team in charity match

19th June 2015

The charity match series organised by the York City Football Club Foundation - with sponsor Benenden and featuring York City legends continues on Sunday 28th June against the Fit Reds Team, a men’s healthy lifestyle project based at Barnsley FC.

The York City and Benenden charity squad will be made up of former players, academy and foundation coaches, and Benenden staff members. The squad is yet to be announced, but in the past has included Richard Cresswell, Jonathon Greening, Andy McMillan, Iain Dunn, Mark Ford & Danial Parker, with John Stockton as manager.

The third in a series of fixtures, this match will see the charity squad play against Barnsley FC – giving local York residents the opportunity to attend and cheer the teams on at the York College site! Spectators are asked to make a donation of £2 each, prior to the kick off at 2pm.

The matches will be played in aid of Benenden’s charities of the year, Macmillan & St Leonard’s Hospice, York City Foundation’s charity, Yorkshire Cancer Research and Barnsley FC CS&ET.

Claire Hetherington, Communications Coordinator at Benenden said, “We’ve had a great response to our last two charity matches – with lots of people coming along on the day to cheer on the teams and helping to raise money for some very worthy causes. It’s a great day for the family and we would encourage anyone in the local area to head over and watch the two teams fight it out.”

Paula Stainton, Foundation Manager of York City FC Foundation said, “We’ve had great success in the past with charity matches and we saw this as a real chance for local teams to get involved. We’re really hoping the local community comes out to support the two teams and help us raise lots of money for the chosen charities.”

Lee Thompson (Fit Reds project coordinator at Barnsley FC ) said “We are delighted to be invited by York City Community foundation to play in this fundraiser. Friendlies with other clubs are a big motivator for the men to maintain their fitness levels and also give us the chance to raise funds for our chosen charities. We will be cycling 63 miles from Barnsley to York the day before and hope they will take it steady on us.’’
