Christmas Day Charity Football Match - Your Footballing Skills are needed - KO 10am

1 year ago By Wayne Harmes

We are looking for people to take photos on the day and share them with us on FB or Twitter....

Ladies and Gentlemen, I, with my mate Mike Michael Lewis are organising a football match for a celebration for the 100th Year anniversary of the Battle of the Somme. On Christmas Day 100 years ago, the War stopped for a game of football. It is our aim to play a game of football like that. The game will be played at Willen Road the home of Newport Pagnell Town Football Club , on Christmas Day with a 10am KO for 1 hour and all for charity which is the Royal British Legion who Mike Lewis works for. ALL players will pay £10 to play, as will the Officials. The wonderful people of NPTFC are organising refreshments and entertainment for the morning. There will be rolling substitutions, we are looking for at two teams of 11 v 11 with at least 5 subs per team, all kinds, all ages, and this will be very light hearted, very little effort and it’s all for charity. Please commit 100%, if you are interested in taking part for any length of time, from 5 minutes to 60 minutes, or if you wanted to manager a team, help with the morning, collect for charity or just drink tea and support a team, even abuse the Ref for a £10 a go(ME!) but more importantly support a very worthy morning and cause, or you can circulate posters for the organizers physically or on social media.
All those FB friends I know can kick a ball, you can send a £10 if they can’t play. All help will not be declined but welcomed.
Thank you.
John Dyer.

Update:
Hope you got yourself a copy of yesterdays programme with a superb article from Andy Gunn which leads onto the Truce Charity game on Christmas day Morning KO 10am.
Any volunteers welcome whether you want to play or just watch. We are also looking for someone or even lots of people to take photos on the day so we can share the experience on Facebook, the Website and Twitter. So please, if you could,get your cameras or phones out and take plenty of photos on the day. Thank you to all that attend, play or help in anyway you can.
It's all to remember those who have fallen and fought for us over the years and to raise money for a brilliant Charity (The British Legion).
It's also all about having fun and a laugh on the morning so nothing too serious!
Have a great Christmas to all and a Happy New year to all.
