Berwick Rangers Football Club are delighted to announce that those serving, or who have served the armed forces will be invited to attend this weekend’s eagerly anticipated League Two clash with Cowdenbeath completely free of charge.
Simply head to the turnstile and produce a Army, Navy or RAF Card or badge and you will be admitted to Shielfield Park for what should be a fiesty clash.
Cowdenbeath will be looking to gain revenge on the mighty ‘Gers after a Stephen Thomson brace sank the Cowden ship at Central Park earlier this season.
In Summer 2016, Berwick confirmed a link-up with the North Northumberland branch of the Royal British Legion, an organisation which helps members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, veterans and their families all year round.
The British Legion also campaigns to improve today’s Service men, women, veterans and their families in almost every aspect of daily life. The Legion also champion Remembrance, safeguarding the memory of those who have given their lives for our freedom through Remembrance education and events.
Formed on 15 May 1921, the Legion brought together four national organisations of ex-Servicemen that had established themselves after the First World War.
The North Northumberland Branch of the Royal British Legion was formed on the Amalgamation of the Crookham and Berwick Branches in 2015. Those looking to learn more about the work of the Legion should contact either the Branch Secretary, Flora Simpson, on 01289 306253 or Membership and Welfare Co-ordinator, Tony Waddell on 01890 820362. The North Northumberland Branch can also be found on Facebook.
