Football Match for Heroes

In memory of Tom Wroe and Gareth Thursby

This game on 29th April 2018 is to help raise money to fund a memorial bench with Gareth and Tom’s names on it. As both soldiers served in The Yorkshire Regiment (1 DWR) we are looking for support from any ex-Dukes that want to come and cheer on the teams playing or even put a strip on if you think you still have what it takes.

On the day we will hold a raffle.  So again if you could donate prizes, that would be fantastic.  The organisers will also be setting up a fund raising page so if you want to donate you can. 

We will be looking to host 4 teams; Armed forces, Ex pro’s, Celebrities and Ossett Albion Vets.

First game will be
Ossett Albion Vets v Celebrities 12:00 Kick Off

Followed by the big one Army/ex army v Ex Professional Footballers with a 15:00 Kick off

Straight after the big game the auction will commence 17:30
