The Fan’s team enjoyed an eventful day at the end of season matches at Aggborough on Saturday.
The below are excerpts taken from the full report (which also includes photos) at http://www.harriersfansteam.co.uk/aggyreports.html
It was a fantastic day which im sure will live long in the memory of everyone involved. Our ‘guest’ players (including Steve Burr, John Finnigan, Dean Bennett, Adie Smith, John Williams, Paul ‘Ocker’ Davies and Marcus Bignot) were brilliant both on and off the pitch and we cant thank them enough for giving up their time to play.
