Stourbridge FC to offer free entry to servicemen and women

10 months ago By Steven Coney

Given the history behind our home, The War Memorial Athletic Ground, the Club wants to show its appreciation for the armed forces.

At the entrance of our ground stands The War Memorial Arch which is now a Grade 2 listed building. It was built in 1928 by Geoffrey Ince and donated by Ernest Stevens as a memorial to the local soldiers that lost their lives in World War I.

We felt it only right that with Remembrance Sunday fast approaching, and with a home game this weekend, we would offer free entry to our armed forces.

This Saturday, November 4th, we host Witton Albion for an Evo-Stik Premier fixture at the War Memorial Ground (3pm kick-off).

As a token of the Club’s gratitude for all those who have served to keep us and our country safe over the years, we are offering all current and former servicemen and women free entry to the match.

The game promises to be an exciting one with both ourselves and Witton Albion trying to force our way back into the play-off positions.

All we ask is that servicemen or women planning to come to the game bring any form of ID that confirms they have served in the forces or their Royal British Legion membership with them to show at the turnstiles.

We will also be running a bucket collection at the War Memorial Ground during the day with all proceeds going to the Royal British Legion.

If you were at the FA Trophy victory over Basford United on Saturday, you may have picked up our new ‘Stourbridge Remembers’ poppy pin badge.

If not, there are still around 50 left and they are just £3. Again, all proceeds from the sales of the pin badge will go to the brilliant Royal British Legion as part of the much loved Poppy Appeal.

We do hope you can come along to the game and from all of us at Stourbridge Football Club, thank you for the sacrifices you have all made for us.
