New and old teams clash for charity

THERE was a huge turnout for Lismore Workers staging of the fifth annual Brian Sharkey Memorial soccer game.

Held at Richards Oval on Saturday, it also served as a fundraiser for former player and captain Cameron Hyde, who is battling bowel cancer.

In an entertaining match the Redmen, made up of current players, defeated a line-up of former players known as the Exmen 5-4 to regain the Brian Sharkey Memorial Cup. Damien Keevers picked up the inaugural Cameron Hyde medal for man of the match, while much interest centred on the naming of the club's Team of the 80s: Glenn Hart, Dave Condon, Andy Wilcox, Wayne Ianna, Mick Stevens, Tony Marquardt, Gordon Bryant, Ken Macpherson, Steven Fredericks, Andy Stevens, John Wraight, Terry Stephens, Peter Wiblen, Neil Wraight and Dave Burgess.
