Battle of The Forces Football Tournament & Family Fun Day

On 23rd March 2014 at Powerleague at Shrewsbury Town Football club there will be a Battle of The Forces Football Tournament and Family Fun Day.

The day is being organised by Nikki Prince of Royal Touch Photography and a team of 24 ladies as part of a year long fund-raising project raising money for The Royal British Legion. The main part of their project is to create a 2015 Vintage Pin Up Calendar with several fundraisers alongside.

The idea behind the event in March is to bring together the local community and forces community for a fun filled day out. With it being the ww1 centenary year it seemed fitting to do something to mark this.

The day will consist of a football tournament on the astro turf pitches. There are spaces for teams and would welcome forces and ex force teams to sign up as well as teams from local police, fire etc.

Alongside the football there will be a big family fun day including stands from local businesses, entertainment and attractions for all the family.

The event will run from 11-5pm with the football kicking off at 11am.

For more information about the event please contact Nikki on 07985 535 594 or 01743 344 675 or visit our facebook page
