The National League and The British Army are pleased to announce that they will field three representative sides to play each other on Wednesday 29 March, with the matches being staged at Harrogate Town, Tamworth and Eastbourne Borough.
All three matches will be supported by Vanarama and S&C Slatter Ltd.
The matches have been organised to strengthen ties between two organisations and enhance the community relations between clubs and Army units in and around the locations selected for these matches.
Full details for each match will be announced soon but they will kick off at 19:45, with an entry price of £5 for adults (including match programme), while seniors and juniors will be FREE.
Brian Barwick, Chairman of The National League said: “This is an innovative approach and we are pleased that with the cooperation of our member clubs we will be able to consolidate the relationships we have collectively and individually with the Army. We look forward to three enjoyable encounters on the field and meeting up on the evening in three different parts of the country, thus enabling fans to come and support these matches. Our grateful thanks are extended to everyone who is working to make each a success.”
Major General Mitch Mitchell, Chairman of the Army FA, added: “Over the last two years the support of The National League, along with their member clubs and title sponsors Vanarama has allowed us to forge new links in communities wherever we are based and to assist personnel leaving to return to their working community. These links grow daily for the benefit of all concerned and these three matches will cement even further the ties existing.”
