CLUBS URGED TO BACK FOOTBALL REMEMBERS

FootballRemembersThe Leicestershire & Rutland County FA is encouraging all clubs, teams and players to take part in the nationwide ‘Football Remembers’ week of activity, which takes place between 5th and 14th December.

Marking the 100th anniversary of the Christmas Truce – one of World War One’s most iconic events – everybody involved in the game, whether it be 11v11, 5-a-side or a kick about in the park, is being encouraged to take a mixed team photo to commemorate the occasion over Christmas 1914, in which German and British forces laid down their arms to join together in no-man’s land, where a number of games of football took place.

Photos should then be uploaded to social media using the hashtag #FootballRemembers, with all images later published on a special website – www.footballremembers.com
