FOOTBALL REMEMBERS GETS UNDERWAY THIS WEEKEND

FootballRemembersThe Leicestershire and Rutland County FA is encouraging all grassroots clubs across the county to take part in the Football Remembers Week of Activity, which starts this week (5th – 14th December).

To mark the 100th anniversary of the 1914 Christmas Truce, everybody is being encouraged to take a mixed team photo ahead of kick-off, in honour of one of the most iconic moments of World War One; the day both sides put down their weapons over Christmas to join together, with a number of football matches taking place in ‘no-man’s land’.

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