Supporters Clubs rally for the George Best Foundation
Following George”s death in November 2005, many fans have supported the George Best Foundation in many ways, not least of all with their fundraising efforts.
In particular many local supporters clubs have been at the forefront of these events.
One such club is the Larne branch of the Manchester United Supporters Clubs, which has Brian Haveron as the branch secretary. Norman and I were invited to their annual dinner at which Jimmy Greenhoff was the guest of honour. Jimmy.
Who was born in 1946 made almost 600 appearances in English Leage football. He transferred to Manchester United in 1976 and the following year helped the team to scoop the F.A Cup (denying Liverpool the treble!!)At the dinner, the George Best Foundation was presented with a very generous donation.
I was also casino online presented with a beautiful poem which was penned by Paul Graham and still hangs proudly on the office wall. Since that evening, Brian has continued with his invaluable support and is a regular participant in our annual George Best Golf Invitational which takes place at the beautiful Galgorm Castle Golf Club.
