Charity Friendly against our local rivals Ossett United this Friday

posted in: First Team News, News | 0

We are delighted to announce that we have arranged a friendly game with our near neighbours Ossett United this Friday evening. With both clubs not having a game this weekend and with players from both squads needing some meaningful playing time Mark Bower and Wayne Benn have agreed to play each other. We would like to thank Ossett United for agreeing to the fixture and that we can use it to support a well deserving local charity.

With the much in demand Horsfall Stadium facility in high demand a game on Saturday was unachievable and so a 7.30pm kick off on Friday the 4th of December has been agreed.

The club have taken this game as an opportunity to support the Sandale Community Trust which is working with Bradford Council to provide much needed food parcels in these difficult and testing times. Working with Friends of Harold Park, which has a food bank collection point in the bowls hut in the Park on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 1pm and 2pm, Sandale prepare and distribute food to homes around the Bradford area. We would encourage you to drop by and make a donation at any of these times over the next few weeks in the run up to Christmas.

In addition the club will be live streaming the game for free. All we ask is that you make any donation you can to our JustGiving fund which will be donated directly to Sandale Community Trust. The club have agreed to match any donations we raise on the night, so every single pound you donate will result in £2 of food being purchased for those most in need in the local Bradford community

You will able to enjoy Mick the game caller and maybe a co-commentator or 2 describe the action, as your favourites play out a much needed game on our fantastic 3G pitch.

Streaming details will be published nearer the time.
