Wirral Lodge played host to International Football Match

24th October 2012

Categories: News

On Saturday October 20, 2012, The Wirral Lodge Hotel, Hoylake was host to the first of what is to become many, International Veteran Football Games in the Wirral. Local team The Mersey Crossed United took on the Studenter Settlementet’s Boldklub (SSB) in what was to be an intense and highly entertaining over 40’s football game.

In April 2012, a veteran football team from Copenhagan travelled to the Wirral to set up a football match against a Local Team. They approached the Head Chef at the Wirral Lodge, Leigh Bennett. Leigh then put together a team of Ex Military personnel named The Mersey Crossed and training started.

As the months passed the game became more and more serious and the plans confirmed. On Saturday October 20, 2012, The Mersey Crossed United was victorious against the SSB with a 3-0 win. The SSB will be welcoming the home team to Copenhagen in the New Year to claim back the The Wirral Cup.
