Boxing Day Football

The Annual Boxing Football Match between Fromeside & Ex-Members has been running every year at Eastville Park since the mid 1960s. The exact date is unknown but if anyone out there knows let us know.

Records of previous fixtures are sketchy however the Ex-Members have been the victors more often than not. Below are the results of the most recent fixtures. The make up of the teams has changed over the years but the ethos of running off that excess turkey (and booze) in a friendly yet highly competive match remains the same. The present format sees Fromeside Explorer Scout Unit and it’s Leadership team play any Ex-Member of Fromeside Venture or Explorer Scout Unit.
