This is going to be a game to remember with so many legends and military personnel giving up their time to support John’s Foundation and raise valuable funds.

Kick off is at 1pm at Wimborne Town Football Club and it’s more than just a game of football.

Samba Panashe is kicking things off before the game, there’s a bar, food, live music after the game with Running Wylde, a kids football tournament, auction and raffle with mega prizes including London Theatre tickets, a Gareth Southgate signed England shirt and an Aston Martin Red Letter Day. This is certain to be a great day. Don’t miss out - get your tickets for this exciting match now! (only £5)

Huge thanks to all the players but special thanks must go to Willo (John Williams) and Viv as without them this match would just not have happened. Also, a huge thanks to Wimborne Town Football Club, our media partners The Daily Echo, Custom Creations who have sponsored the Armed Forces kit and to BCP Bournemouth Creative Print who are sponsoring all the print for our promotional materials. We really can’t thank them enough for their amazing support.
