Press Release on behalf of the National League

The National League and The British Army will play three representative games on Wednesday 29th March.

At the request of the National League, we have been asked to publicise these games to help attract good attendances. As advised at the National League EGM the Players will be solely selected from National League North and South Clubs.

The National League and The British Army will play three representative games on Wednesday 29th March.

The National League and The British Army are pleased to jointly announce that they will field three representative sides to play each other simultaneously on Wednesday 29th March with the matches being staged at Harrogate Town, Tamworth and Eastbourne Borough respectively.

All three matches will be supported in partnership by Vanarama and S&C Slatter Ltd.

The purposes of these matches are:
- Strengthen existing ties between The National League and The British Army at a recognised sporting event.
- Enhance the community relationships between local member clubs and Army units in and around the locations selected for these matches.

Full details for each of these matches will be detailed in due course but will kick off at 7.45pm with an entry price of £5 for Adults (including match programme) whilst seniors and juniors will be FREE.

Brian Barwick, Chairman of The National League said "This is an innovative approach and we are pleased that with the cooperation of our member clubs we will be able to consolidate the relationships we have collectively and individually with the Army. We look forward to three enjoyable encounters on the field and meeting up on the evening in three different parts of the country, thus enabling fans to come and support these matches. Our grateful thanks are extended to everyone who is working to make each a success".

Major General Mitch Mitchell, Chairman of the Army FA endorsed those comments by saying “Over the last two years the support of The National League itself, along with their member clubs and their title sponsors Vanarama has allowed us to forge new links in communities wherever we are based and to assist personnel leaving to return to their working community. These links grow daily for the benefit of all concerned and these three matches will cement even further the ties existing. The Army FA is pleased to join in this venture and hope that it will attract a good following both military and civilian on 29th March. We have strong community connections with the three venues chosen".
