I had the great privilege of playing for UK Parliament FC supported by the FA earlier this week against a team of British Army soldiers, vets and reservists called the Crusaders. I was really pleased to take part, especially over this Remembrance period, and a minute's silence was observed before the game.
We played to support and raise awareness of ABF The Soldiers' Charity that supports veterans and their families.
You can see me in the photo below, dressed discreetly in bright orange... The MPs won 2-0 and yours truly got man of the match for a few saves in goal. Mansfield Town Football Club - sign me up!
Very grateful to the charity and the FA for organising such a brilliant event.
