East Antrim Recreate First Ever Match

Centenary Event - E.A.H.C. v Down

A reversal of the 70-0 defeat inflicted on the club 100 years ago was always going to be tricky. East did, however, get to within 64 goals of their target!

A 6-2 scoreline ensured a merry time was had by all in green. Moustaches were stuck-on, hair slicked back, and photos taken...

Swann, Reid and Strange looked the part in their 1902 'taches. In fact, everyone got INTO the spirit of the day - even umpire, Bill Gowdy.

Special thanks should go to Gary Hooks for organising the event. Thanks also to those who provided sandwiches for the reception in the Crown & Shamrock - where a good time was had by all, especially those who managed to get themselves 2/3 drinks onto the tab!!!
