TEAM NEWS: Squad Announced Ahead of Fisher More Fixture

by Mick Cain

VINTAGE CLARETS are in action again on Sunday 29th October against Fisher More School (ex students and staff).

The match is to mark two significant events for the school, with assistant head teacher Simon Atkin adding;

“The reason as to why we are hosting this fixture is two fold.

Firstly, we officially opened our new 3G football pitch on 12th October. After 4 years in  the planning phase and one year of actual building we were delighted to have BFC captain Ben Mee officially open our new facility. As part of our opening celebrations we have a festival of football weekend on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th October with various teams and clubs from the East Lancashire area using the facility free of charge.

Secondly, over the course of the weekend we are hoping to raise money for Pendleside Hospice, a charity very close to our school heart. Burnley FC have kindly donated a signed shirt, ball and pennant for us to raffle off in aid of Pendleside Hospice. The draw for the raffle will take place after the Clarets game on Sunday.”

The game kicks off at 2pm with full address details below:
