THE IRVIN BROWN STAND
The Irvin Brown Stand has now been completed, and was opened by Mrs Janet Boyle (Irvin’s Daughter) and Alex Pike a friend and college of Irvin. This was done prior to the 2009 annual Irvin Brown Memorial Match on Cup Final Day. It was felt that this was appropriate as it was at these games that most of the money required to build the stand was raised.
The net amount required to build the stand was £28,214.35. Just over half this money was raised by donations from Irvin’s family, individuals, Companies, and Organisations many connected to the Irvin Brown Memorial Matches. The remainder of the money required came from a grant from the FA Stadia Improvement Fund.
Hamworthy United would like to thank all those people who have contributed in what ever way to this fitting memorial to a highly respected ex-Hammer. Special thanks to Andy James who organizes the Memorial Games.
