My name is Andrew Doneghan and I am a teacher in South Shields, Tyne and Wear. On the weekend of 8-10th of July our staff football team - is visiting your fine city for 3 days of cultural enrichment (visiting museums, art galleries, concert halls and the occasional Public House). In the past we have undertaken similar excursions to Amsterdam, Edinburgh, Amsterdam (again), Hanover and Cologne. Not all of them have resulted in diplomatic incidents.

A key part of our weekend away is the playing of a game of football against a local side (for some of us we need this as an excuse to convince our partners that we are not just consuming large quantities of beer!) Therefore, I am sending this email to see if your school/organisation has a staff 11 a side team, and if they do, if they would be willing to play a friendly against us on the Saturday morning – 9th of July - We are a typical staff team i.e. our ages range from 23 to 60+, our skill level from carthorse (me) to the odd Saturday morning pub player and our fitness from a marathon eater ( me) to the odd marathon runner. If you are willing to play against us we will be over the moon, boy done well etc and I can be contacted on the following email address


Or on 07946324566

Many Thanks

Andrew Doneghan


If you do not play but know a colleague/school that do could you forward this email onto them
