Chairman Chris Smith said the club will be looking to make the day an annual event.

“We had between 500 and 1,000 people attend which was very good considering it was Brighouse 1940’s weekend.

“It was open to all the local residents and we had charity stalls . We had teams from three-years-old to 18 and we now have 270 players as we continue to grow year on year.”
