The first meeting of the Testimonial committee took place tonight at the Ivanhoe hotel and was a good lengthy process to get things sorted out between all involved. We have a long slog ahead of us and we are looking forward to getting things moving. The next news will hopefully be the announcement of the opposition manager and the ticket details. Security, liability, health and safety, policing and some events on the perifery were the main topics on the agenda.
Arranging committee meeting with the Testimonial team for Tuesday night to discuss various aspects of the organisation. Things are a little quieter today will have more to tell on Wednesday no doubt.
Word is getting out about the Testimonial for Harry. Check out this link http://origin-community.manutd.com/forums/t/223615.aspx. Been talking to Harry's son and John White on email today. Windsor as a venue has been approved by their board for which we are eternally grateful. Ticket news may not be available until 15th February now as we are unable to meet with the IFA until the 14th.

Harry Gregg was at his best as he met football fans in the Whitefort Andersonstown Road. He regaled them with many stories about his favourite moments and people in sport. Approximately £1,800 was raised for the Friends of the Cancer Centre.
Harry visited U105 to talk to Johnny Hero and talk about the cancer charity Friends of Cancer for whom he is raiseing funds at the Whitefort on the Andersonstown Road. John White spoke, at length about the testimonial game. Colleen from the Friends of the Cancer Centre explained a bit about their work. Alan Keegan, stadium announcer at Old Trafford spoke a little of his work and what his role is this evening.
