Kings Langley Football Club are holding a fundraising game on Friday, May 3, for a lasting memorial to friend and number one fan, Matt Allcock.
Matt sadly passed away in January after KLFC’s away match at Weymouth and was a big figure at the club.
The game will be a battle of the Langleys as KLFC will face Abbots Langley with a 7pm kick off.
Entry will be pay-what-you-want and all funds raised will go towards a permanent memorial in Matt’s name.
Greg Lee, who orgniased the event, highlighted how the money raised will be going towards a mini-bus which the club wants to buy and will be in Matt’s name.
With food, drink, a raffle and music by a local celebrity DJ, the club is inviting the community down for what is set to be a “great evening, for a great man.”
Raffle prizes on offer include four tickets to a Watford home game in the early 2019 to 2020 season, a Kings Langley FC 2019 to 2020 season ticket, a 30 minute back massage treatment and much more.
There will also be a silent auction for a signed Watford FC shirt.
When meeting Jeremey Wilkins and Darren Elliot at the stadium last month, the pair spoke about the tribute match which they had for Matt shortly after his death.
They said: “We as a group are very tight and Matt was a massive part of that. The tribute we had for him at the club is hard to sum up, it epitomised what the community and this club is all about.
“It was an amazing day for everyone but especially for the family. We will never forget it for as long as we live.”
Gates open at 4pm and the match will set off, under the floodlights, at 7pm.
