Free foot­ball for ser­vice­men and women

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

FOOT­BALLERS are call­ing on the sup­port of the armed forces in their next game.

Ser­vice­men and women are in­vited to at­tend Mac­cles­field Town Foot­ball Club’s game against Alder­shot for free as a thank you for the hard work they do.

The de­ci­sion was made to is­sue free tick­ets for the game due to Alder­shot’s con­nec­tion with the mil­i­tary - the town orig­i­nated as a Mil­i­tary camp and is home to the head­quar­ters of the Army’s Sup­port Com­mand.

James Beck­ett, me­dia man­ager at the foot­ball club, said: “Ob­vi­ously there is a large con­nec­tion with Alder­shot and the armed forces and we were keen to recog­nise this so we de­cided to la­bel our game ‘Armed Forces Day’.

“Hope­fully this will see a good re­ac­tion from the peo­ple of Mac­cles­field and the sur­round­ing ar­eas, and I’m sure on the day the reg­u­lar sup­port­ers at the Moss Rose will be keen to show their grat­i­tude for those in the forces.”

He added: “The sup­port def­i­nitely makes a dif­fer­ence and we would greatly ap­pre­ci­ate fans get­ting down to the Moss Rose to get be­hind the Silk­men dur­ing the fight for a place in the Foot­ball League.

The game takes place on Satur­day, Jan­uary 23 at the Moss Rose Sta­dium with a 3pm kick off. For the free tick­ets con­tact the club on 01625 264686.
