People in Hertfordshire are being invited to celebrate Armed Forces Day at the Hertfordshire Cheetahs American Football team in St Albans later this month.
The club recently received £9,880 in funding from the National Lottery Awards for All Fund to put on an Armed Forces Game for the local community in St Albans to the delight of chairman Luke Clark.
He said: “We are really proud to do this as a lot of our players are ex-servicemen and we are only too aware of the sacrifice they have made on are behalf.”
As part of the bid, the club has been delivering six weeks of coaching to local Army, Navy and Air Cadet corps who will participate in a flag football tournament on the day ahead of the Senior Team match against the Sussex Thunder.
It is part of a double header the Junior Team also have a game against the Cambridge Cats on this date.
The club has also purchased equipment to loan to adults or children who want to play American Football but do not have the means to purchase the equipment themselves.
The day is being held at St Albans Rugby Club, Oaklands Lane, St Albans on June 30
The junior game kicks off at 12.00pm while the senior game starts at 3.00pm
