Dan shockingly died, at the tender age of 33, within 8 weeks of being diagnosed with testicular cancer despite being given an 80% chance of survival. Dan was an extremely knowledgeable and well liked member, and moderator, of the NUFC Footymad message board, and had engaged in football related banter with fans from other clubs, forging many friendships in the process.

The Dan Pringle Trust has been launched in his memory and all proceeds from this event are to be donated to "The Joe Wallace Breath of Life fund",  (affiliated to The British lung Foundation) organised by Sunderland supporter Paul Wallace ( www.joewallace.webeden.co.uk ).

Dan was a keen supporter of this charity, even before his own illness, both contributing himself and drumming up support and contributions from others on a regular basis.

The Tournament is taking place on Saturday September 8th 2007 at Powerleague, Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, where teams from all 4 corners of the United Kingdom will battle it out for the status of being crowned the very first winners of "The Dan Pringle Memorial Cup".
