Mark Burgan was a soldier from Kirkby who was sadly killed in Afghanistan in 2011, his loss hit the family and his community hard, and he will be sadly missed. Mark loved sports and in particular football, his family and KSSP are delighted to announce the seventh annual football tournament in his honour, where our primary schools can come together, have some fun, and remember a true gentleman!
