KO mark 50 years in Westmorland League

Date: Friday 4th October 2019

KIRKOSWALD Football Club this month celebrated 50 years in the Westmorland League — and to mark the occasion it is hoping to get as many players and supporters past and present together for a home game on Saturday, 19th October.

The club was formed in 1949 and, until 1965, ran a medals competition from April to June to raise money for children in the village to take a trip to Morecambe — complete with lunch and five shillings to spend.
