Limestone Welcome Danish Visitors for 40th Meeting

Scunthorpe Saturday League side Limestone Rangers faced their friends from Denmark, Stouby G.I.F, last month in what was the 40th meeting between the two sides.

Limestone, who are based at Willoughton near Gainsborough, have been playing against Danish side Stouby G.I.F. for 40 years and have developed a strong bond with the club during this time. 

The first trip took place in 1979, which means this year’s meeting signified the 40th anniversary. 

A great weekend was had in and around Willoughton, with plenty of socialising with friends and families. On the pitch, a match was held to play for the ‘Peter Wray’ trophy (Limestone’s late chairman) and, after a tight first half, the Danish visitors tired and Limestone ran out winners 5-0. 

Limestone now look forward to visiting Denmark next May to try and defend the trophy.
