Footballers and ex-military personnel from across Suffolk and Norfolk will grace the pitch this weekend as funds are raised for a worthy cause.

A popular charity football match will be staged once more as vital funds are raised for Scotty's Little Soldiers.

This Sunday, March 26, a MG Legends team - managed by ex-Gorleston manager Scott Butler - will take on Scotty's at the home of Kirkley and Pakefield FC.

The match, which kicks off at 2pm at Walmer Road, is sponsored by Galliford Try as it raises funds for Scotty's Little Soldiers - the King's Lynn based military charity who are dedicated to helping children and young people who have lost a parent serving in the British Armed Forces.

The match, now in its seventh year, is organised by Galliford Try’s A47 site agent Mike Guymer, who also manages MG Legends.

Supported by Force One, and East Point Sports, the MG Legends squad includes Lowestoft Town manager Jamie Godbold and assistant boss Adam Gusterson alongside current and former players and managers.

The Scotty’s squad is made up of ex-military personnel and sportsmen.

Also supporting the day will be Waveney U8 Panthers, who are acting as mascots, with contractor Force One sponsoring some of the kit. 

Ross Glendinning, commercial director at Galliford Try said: "As someone who has played competitive football for 30 years, these types of events offer great social interaction, fun, and enjoyment for participants and spectators which are highly beneficial in today's world."

As part of the Regional Delivery Partnership (RDP), Galliford Try is currently working on the A47 road improvement programme.

Contractor Force One is set to work with Galliford Try on the A47 programme.

Business Development Manager, Joe Clark, said: "Force One Ltd are happy to support, sponsor and supply the kits for the charity football game, in aid of Scotty’s Little Soldiers."
