It is not as famous as Wembley Stadium, but this Saturday everyone’s favourite message board-related football team will be playing at The Valley, the 27k capacity home of Charlton Athletic Football Club. a ground that has seen regular Premier League football as recently as 10 years ago.
The game is a testimonial/farewell for Cyril, all-round good egg and longstanding manager/organiser/captain of National FC. When the call came to provide the opposition for this important match there was no way that we could say no. We’re the good guys, remember.
The team for Saturday has already been selected, but you are cordially invited to come and cheer us on. Gates will be open from noon, and entry is free. If you ask nicely, you can even get your photo taken pitch side with one of the DiS players. And there will be drinks afterwards, regardless the result.
Full address: The Valley, Floyd Road, Charlton, SE7 8BL
See you there?
