The following received via the AoNISC:

THE ALAN McDONALD TRUST


Former Northern Ireland and QPR players have joined together to play in a Legends match in memory of Alan McDonald - and officially launch The Alan McDonald Trust.

The match, which will be played at Crusaders FC in Belfast on Monday 10th September (7.30pm kick-off), will see the two teams lock horns under the leadership of two legends of the Irish and English game, Pat Jennings and Gerry Francis. All proceeds from the match will be donated to the Alan McDonald Trust.

The Northern Ireland Team will include Iain Dowie and Jim Magilton, both former QPR Managers, along with former team members of Alan from the Northern Ireland World Cup squads of 1982 and 1986, and a host of other internationals including Sammy McIlroy, Keith Gillespie, Jimmy Nicholl, Gerry Armstrong, Jimmy Quinn, Ian Stewart, Billy Hamilton and Steve Lomas.

The Rs XI will include Ray Wilkins, Kevin Gallen, Marc Bircham, Danny Maddix, Bradley Allen, Paul Furlong, Tony Roberts, Steve Wicks and Andy Sinton, as well as other team-mates of Alan from his seventeen-year career at Loftus Road.

The Alan McDonald Trust aims to reach out to the disadvantaged and disabled children of all cultures in Belfast and the local areas. The Trust will challenge the issues they face by providing facilities and projects that will have a positive and dynamic effect on their lives through participation in sport.

The Alan McDonald Trust has been set up by Alans widow Tonia and several of Maccas former close friends, who aim to embrace his hard-working ethic and provide a sporting legacy for the youngsters of Northern Ireland.
The response to this match has been fantastic, said Tonia.

Im really taken aback by the numbers of ex-players who have committed to play for Alan. It should be a great evening and Im really looking forward to seeing the ground full of both Irish and QPR fans.
Tickets for the match will be priced at 10 (adults) and 7 concessions (Under-16s and Over-65s). On sale details will be announced in due course.

Anyone else up for heading to this. I'm back home from Monday afternoon. Will probably contact the IFA and reserve a ticket for myself.
