Cancelled due to poor weather on 10th December – watch this space for new date in January!

Before the kick-off there will be reading of an account of the infamous football match held in no-man’s land between the British & German troops on Christmas Eve during WWI.   The Captains of the England and German teams (Jack Whitehall is the captain of England), carrying white flags, will meet in the middle of the pitch to exchange gifts – just chocolate bars – and then the match, refereed by Arsenal legend Lee Dixon will commence.
