Catshill FC match cancelled but Primrose still score

Catshill FC Over 50s have had to postpone their annual International Charity match due to Covid 19 restrictions.

But Primrose Hospice has scored as the players have donated their refunded flight deposits to the local charity.

Catshill FC has travelled to the north east of Scotland for the last two years to play against Keith Athletic at the local Highland League venue.

Each year they have supported charities raising over £10,000.

However, this year’s efforts have been suspended until next May when the team hope they’ll be able to restart the friendly rivalry which has built up in this Scotland versus England clash.

Generous

Players have generously added the £420 deposit money to the £130 they have already raised for Primrose Hospice.

Team manager Gary Macpherson, said: “The team are disappointed to have to delay the match.

“However, we were keen to provide some support this year and it’s a great gesture to donate the deposit money to help the great work conducted by Primrose.

“Rest assured we’ll be making the trip north in 2021 in an effort to beat the totals raised in the past two years.”

Support

Primrose Hospice has continued to provide care and support to people with life-limited conditions and their families throughout the pandemic.

The charity’s Family Support team has also been dealing with an increase of people needing support.

Many of these people are experiencing complex bereavements as a result of Coronavirus.
