1 year ago By Wayne Harmes

Over £1,200 was raised during the Xmas Day Charity Truce Match at Willen Road.

An amazing Christmas morning by all involved. I have copied some of the guys comments after the game on there experience in playing etc. A massive thanks to all involved.

Result on No Mans Land at Willen Road, Newport Pagnell.
Date: Christmas Day - 10am.
The Allies 7-7 The Germans.

£1,200 raised for the British Legion! A BIG Thank you! to EVERYONE! for playing, supporting, donating, turning up, drinking tea and eating cake. Final score of 7-7, with a superb point blank save by Kelly Parsons in the final minutes... Superb by everyone involved....

This Morning my Dad played in a Football Match for the Royal British Legion and even Scored a Goal at the age of 78 in a 7-7 Draw, Just over £1200 raised.

The guns fell silent, out came a football, a jolly good time was had by both sides - before the industrial slaughter of modern warfare resumed and carried on for the next four years.
In 1914, World War I was entering its first and what many hoped would be its only winter. Prayers for peace were answered as a spontaneous truce resulted in the fighting being replaced by football.
We will always and must remember those who fought for our freedom.
Stuart Bailey.

Played in the Truce match this morning in the 100 year anniversary of the Somme and captained England to victory against the Germans.
More importantly over £1000 was raised for the Royal British legion. Well done to all that were involved and sorry Darren Clarke for my reckless lunge
