US flavour to Thorpeness’ YM game

VETERAN players from Thorpeness and Ipswich YM came together in the coastal village at the weekend for a friendly match.

The game saw players who represented Thorpeness, as well as Sizewell, in the 1980s and 90’s, take to the pitch for an entertaining clash.

Among those taking part were two very special visitors from the US, Vince Lemus and Bill Perkins.

The duo worked at Bentwaters Air Force base as did fellow American, Dave Martinez, who remained in Suffolk.
