Dallas charity cup tournament

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome everyone to the 4th annual DALLAS CHARITY CUP TOURNAMENT on behalf of both the Charity Cup organization as well as the Bethel Romanian Church, the church host. This tournament is a fundraiser for the less fortunate kids as well as adults in the 3rd world countries and all the proceeds will go towards the operating costs and the general running of these CC programs.
This past year, the Charity Cup team had a tremendous year, making thousands of people in many countries receiving hope trough Jesus Christ.

We are very excited about our 4th annual CHARITY CUP and we hope that everyone involved enjoys it and finds it to be a fun, competitive, positive and valuable experience. Here in Dallas, Texas, we have people that have grown up in the Charity Cup programs and we recognize the importance of those programs in development of our future young leaders & missionaries of tomorrow.
Our hope is that this tournament will provide an environment for the church members to play in a competitive atmosphere with an emphasis on life skill development. We would encourage all the local pastors to come and become a part of this great event and to let the teenagers as well as adult members to participate. Make this a yearly event for your church fellowship.
We also hope that all involved will display the level of sportsmanship that the event deserves.
We look forward to an exciting weekend of great fellowship & soccer and once again, we thank everyone for your support.

The defensive minded mid­fielder amassed a total of 395 first class appear­ances for Manchester United and he appeared in his final match streamfodboldlive.dk for the Old Traf­ford club in a high scoring and thrilling 4–3 tri­umph against long­time crosstown adversaries Manchester City at Maine Road on the 5th of May 1971. Manchester United were three up at the half time break cour­tesy of goals from George Best, Bobby Charlton and Denis Law respect­ively. Then during the second period, Freddy Hill, Francis Lee and Ian Mellor pro­duced one apiece for The Light Blues, while the one and only George Best netted the win­ning goal for The Manchester Reds.

Ebul­lient and strong, Paddy Crerand was a dynamic force in the middle of the park for Manchester United in his time at Old Traf­ford and the long serving stal­wart won the Eng­lish Foot­ball League Cham­pi­on­ship in both 1964–65 and 1966–67, the FA Cup in 1963 as well as the coveted UEFA European Cup in May 1968. The Glaswe­gian accu­mu­lated 304 Eng­lish Foot­ball League appear­ances for Manchester United between 1963 and 1971 and was pro­moted to assistant man­ager under his fellow coun­tryman Tommy Docherty in December 1972 before he ulti­mately left The Red Devils to take the mana­gerial helm at Divi­sion Three club Northampton Town at the start of the 1976–77 season. Paddy Crerand also enjoyed a com­par­at­ively short spell with South African side Wits Uni­ver­sity Foot­ball Club in Bloem­fon­tein in Johan­nes­burg.

With both of his par­ents coming from the small town of Donegal in the Republic of Ire­land, the Manchester United mid­field admin­is­trator became increas­ingly involved in Irish nation­alist politics over the years. A British Labour Party member, the elo­quent and often out­spoken foot­baller was also a very good friend of John Hume of the Social Demo­cratic and Labour Party in Northern Ire­land. In 1975, the no-nonsense Paddy Crerand went to a secret meeting in a safe house in the Bog­side area of Derry in Northern Ire­land where the Manchester United favourite would have secret talks with sev­eral top IRA mem­bers, including the legendary Martin McGuin­ness. Paddy Crerand: “The Prot­estant people in Northern Ire­land were used and abused by the British Gov­ern­ment. How could you have working class people living in poverty voting Tory? You looked at two working class people shooting each other and then you asked your­self how was that pos­sible. It was divide and con­quer, the British trait from the year dot.”
