A GROUP of players from the Netherfield FC squad of the late eighties and early nineties will return to the club on Saturday for a very special reunion.

The event, which forms part of the club's centenary celebrations, will begin with the ex-players viewing the centenary exhibition in the town's library

The group will then move on to the ground to catch up with former colleague and current boss of the now renamed Kendal Town Steve Edmondson at the club's home BetVictor League clash against Droylsden.

Those expected to attend Saturday's game are Simon Whittle, Jamie Frankland, Gary Moffat, Dave Smith, Graham Byram, Mel Tottoh, Steve McCullough, Dave Phizacklea, Mickey Southern and Norman Wharton.

Kendal Town Reserves lost 3-1 at Bradford Riasa last Friday in a Lancashire Cup group game.

Town went 1-0 down in the first half after a long distance strike by Dawson Christina.

And the home side, who consist of Yorkshire based US college players, extended their lead with two goals in two minutes during the second half, Logan Lafferty rounding the keeper and scored before Victor Davies made it 3-0.

The visitors pulled a goal back on 87 minutes from the penalty spot after Leo Holliday was felled in the area with Emil Jaaskelainen stepping up and sending the keeper the wrong way, but it was a mere consolation as the game ended 3-1.

The Reserves' next scheduled game is Thursday, October 10 when they host Leeds Riasa in the Lancashire Cup.
