Expo Cup to be held Sunday 17 August

Thursday 14 August 2008, 4.14pm

On Sunday 17 August 2008, North Division will be hosting the annual Expo Cup Competition at the King George V Playing Field in Allington Road, Newick beginning at 11am. This charity cup competition was started back in 1968 and in the last 40 years £10-£15,000 has been donated to churches, cancer hospices and children’s charities.

The first event took place at the Ardingly South of England Showground and the proceeds were donated to the Sussex Churches Restoration Fund but now, if there’s no church appeal locally, a similar charity can be nominated by the organising division.

Because of her involvement with Sussex Churches, this competition was very dear to the heart of Mrs Gladys Anderton, a life-long member of Clayton Stoolball Club, who died nearly five years ago. She was a lovely person who will always be remembered, but particularly when this event is played.

The competition is open to the five Sussex divisions (Central, East, Mid, North and West), Surrey and Kent, although Kent are unable to be present this year.
