Grimsby — 18 June 2016
National Armed Forces Day Festival of Football
- Linden Homes Club,
Cleethorpes Town is delighted to announce that on Saturday 18th June a Cleethorpes Town Select XI will host two Armed Forces matches with the Army Football Women’s and Men’s Reserve 11 both playing at the Linden Homes Club. Both games will be played on the same day, with the Women kicking off at 12:45pm and the Men at 3:00pm, with free admission for all.
This special day is to coincide with Armed Forces Week; the celebrations begin as the Armed Forces Day flag is raised on buildings and famous landmarks around the country.
Cleethorpes Town Vice-Chairman David Mann commented, “It is a very prestigious event for the area and we are very much looking forward to being involved. We were first approached last year by the MOD to see if we would host the two matches and took no time in accepting their fantastic offer.”
He added, “There will be stalls, attractions, a BBQ, a beer tent and much more which will all encapsulate the spirit of Armed Forces Day. We are delighted to work with the North East Lincolnshire Council and the MOD to celebrate this fantastic week.”
