There’s a new charity football team in town! In fact, possibly Grantham’s only charity football team.
A team of ‘old boys’ and footballing veterans have come together to form Dickens Road Diamonds, named after the home ground of Harrowby United FC who they’re affiliated to.
Their first match is scheduled to take place on Friday 10/12/21, 7pm kick off under the floodlights at Harrowby United.
They’re playing Lincoln-based charity team Hughsie FC.
The match is raising money for Grantham Foodbank who need help to support over 100 families in the area this Christmas, and the players are committed to ensuring no one goes hungry and that no child goes without.
In addition they’ll be making a donation to SADSUK which is the beneficiary that Hughsie FC represent.
Spokesman John Smyth said: “We’re extremely grateful to someone wonderful local businesses who’ve agreed to sponsor us as a team to fund kit and equipment, along with The Place2Bee who are sponsoring the match.”
