Casuals offering free entry to armed forces personnel

Armed forces and emergency services personnel will be granted free entry to Corinthian-Casuals game this Saturday.

The Tolworth-based club are making the offer in honour of Remembrance Sunday. A bugler will play The Last Post prior to kick-off, and volunteers will be collecting donations for the Poppy Appeal during the afternoon.

The commemorative matchday programme includes an extensive look back at Casuals visit to the Somme last year, where captain Danny Bracken and chairman Brian Vandervilt (pictured) laid wreaths at the graves of former great Corinthians.

A special commemorative programme will also be on sale, which includes a feature on Casuals visit to the Somme last year, where captain Danny Bracken and chairman Brian Vandervilt laid wreaths at the graves of former Corinthians.

It is believed that Corinthians and Casuals football clubs lost more players than any other sporting organisation in the country during the Great War. The clubhouse at Casuals’King George’s Field home hosts a memorial plaque to all those who lost their lives whilst serving their country in conflict.

The FA Trophy Second Qualifying Round tie with Wingate & Finchley kicks-off at 3.00pm. Members of the armed forces and emergency services are asked to bring ID with them to secure their afternoon of free football.
