Ben's Den

Ben’s Den is the winner ⚽️, thanks to Knight &co

What a day! An absolutely incredible turnout which surpassed all of our expectations and we couldn’t be any happier right now.

Firstly thankyou to every single one of you who attended and made yesterday what it was. Thankyou to all the lads for taking part and putting on some incredible games of football for everyone.

Thankyou to Carol, Gordon and everybody else at the Stute for being such fantastic hosts.

Thankyou to all of our sponsors, Trent Barton for our trophies, Advanced Roofing, The Pines Ltd, CL Groundworks and FT Heating and Plumbing for buying all the goal nets.

Thankyou to Ellie Tatham, LNC, James Byrne, Will Holmes and Stuart Richardson for performing.

Thankyou to Charlie and Kirsty for taking care of the entire day and making sure it ran smoothly.

Thankyou to Cam, Ben, Didi and Nick for helping set everything up Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Thankyou to all the referees for taking time out of their day at no cost.

Thankyou to Impressions for doing all the printing and banners.

Finally we’d like to congratulate all the lads at AFC Kirk Hallam for winning the cup.

Yesterday was only the beginning and we can’t wait to make this a yearly thing. We’ve counted all the money up and we’re so buzzing to announce that we raised a total of over… £3020!!!

This has absolutely blown us away and it’s all thanks to you lot. It’s so good to see all of Ilkeston come together to raise money for an incredible cause.

We’ll see you all again next year, see if Kirk Hallam can defend the title.

All the Knight & Co boys x
