Stoke City v Chelsea

Date: November 9, 2015 Author: Rachel Gaulton Categories: Events, Wright

On Saturday 7th November, Mrs Ball, Jack Hickman and Brandon Lucking were guests of Stoke City FC at their “Remembrance Weekend” match against Chelsea.  They received complimentary tickets and were featured in the Match Day Programme remembering Lance Corporal Leigh Richmond Roose, a former SCFC goalkeeper.  Photographs of Jack and Brandon at The Thiepval Memorial laying a pennant kindly donated by the football club were included along with details of Leigh Roose’s illustrious career before his premature death at 38 in 1916.  Mrs Ball was especially pleased with the result – 1 – 0 to Stoke!
