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 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!!!!
