Mike King is organising a charity football match which will include Redway Runners – all the info below:
If you are as ‘sick as a parrot’ when you get a bad parkrun time or with the recent England performance at Euro 2016, then Redway Runners are giving you the opportunity to get this disappointment out of the system.
On Sunday 4 September 13.30 at The Recreation Ground, Hanslope, the inaugural Redway Runners F.C. a.k.a The Green Army, will be taking on the might of AFC Santander (a.k.a. Merchant Banker) in a football match on behalf of Charity of the Year, The Haemophilia Society.
Complementing the dazzling skills on the field (no jokes about tackle) all supporters will be able to purchase a Match day Programme which qualifies them to an array of raffle prizes post match (let us know if you can donate a proze). The raffle draw and free food will be supplied in The Cock pub in the centre of the village immediately after the game.
So if you fancy yourself as a whippet of a winger, a rapid right back or simply like kicking people (Sir Douglas of Yabsley) then please contact Mike King at firstname.lastname@example.org to put your name forward for squad selection. Hanslope FC have kindly supplied the pitch, changing facilities, tea room, kit and match officials all free of charge so a huge green heart emoji to their Committee.
Ladies – Let us know if you are interested and we will see if we can get a women’s match going as well.
It would be amazing if we could rally up a big support on the day and we can make this an annual event for the Charity of the Year. Both teams will not only be playing for pride, but also a Trophy!!!!
