The Harris family provided the following comment ahead of the announcement of the game: “We were blown away by the number of messages we received in the aftermath of Jerry’s passing, and we wanted an opportunity to celebrate his extraordinary contribution to Cork City FC and Irish football, so we are delighted to be able to announce details of this game. It is also very important to us that there is a charitable element to the game, with a donation to The Alzheimer Society of Ireland, a cause that is very close to our hearts. We are very much looking forward to the game and to celebrating Jerry, and would love as many people as possible to come and join us there.”
More players will be announced in the coming days, and we would ask all City fans and League of Ireland fans to support this very worthy event.
