THE Jordan Sinnott Foundation Trust has finally got a date for its rearranged charity match.

Guiseley will be hosting the game between West Yorkshire Police FC and Supporting Charities FC on Sunday, August 15 at 1pm.

Bradford-born professional footballer Sinnott, the son of former City player Lee, was killed on a night out in Nottinghamshire last January after being brutally assaulted.

The Foundation Trust was set up in his honour, and has several key objectives:

  • To provide financial assistance to vulnerable and under privileged children and young adults to help them access sport, leisure and exercise. This may be done through the provision of sports equipment, membership to a club, transport costs etc.
  • To harness the power of sport, play and physical activity to tackle the challenges faced by vulnerable and under privileged children and young adults subjected to domestic violence or who have difficult life circumstances through access to sport.
  • By children and young adults we refer to those aged between 5 years old and 21 years old: however, The Jordan Sinnott Foundation Trust will consider applications from outside this age range if there is real and true hardship.
  • Applications for funding are welcomed from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland from individuals or groups and teams.
  • To give an annual grant or funding to other charities who share the same objectives.
  • To give an annual grant or funding (either financial or through purchasing of equipment) to charities as nominated by the Board of Trustees.

Former Bantams striker Jon Stead is a trustee for the Foundation, having been a close friend and team-mate of Sinnott at Huddersfield.

On the news of the charity match at Nethermoor, he tweeted: "Our charity match is back on 15th August

@GuiseleyAFC. It will be a great family day out and I’m sure an entertaining game!"

Ticket details for the game will be confirmed at a later date.
