We are disappointed to announce that Harry Redknapp will be unable to attend the charity football match at Wimborne Town FC on Thursday April 27th. Unfortunately, an event Harry was already committed to has been moved from April 25th to 27th and he has had to withdraw. However, we are thrilled to announce that AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has agreed to step in and take over the reins. We are truly grateful for your support Eddie, thank you.

Lip Sync For Louis

Many thanks should go to everyone who made the night possible and in particular Tom. The effort Tom put in was clear and Louis would have been touched.
