Pre-season 2017-2018

Hoping to get around 20-25 pre-season games in before the 2017-2018 season proper commences in August. Kick off times and any other details will be added at a later date

There are a couple of  "pre" pre-season charity games at Eastwood's 3G Coronation Park facility.
On Saturday 24th June, Gibraltar FC will take on an All Stars team in aid of Macmillans. Last season this Community Cup match ended up 12-0 to Gibraltar, but no-one was unduly bothered about the score! Kick off is at 1pm and admission is free. I'll have a go on the raffle and probably buy a cake or two!!!

The day after Eastwood are again the hosts, as autism charity team AFA Charity FC do battle against Phil Carrington's Ex-Forces squad. Kick off scheduled for 3pm - £2.00 adult entry with U16 FOC.
Local watering holes are sponsoring this event - well played Dog & Parrot, Olivers Pub & Kitchen, The Wellington, The Tap & Growler, The Foresters, The Old Vaults and the Sun Inn.

I am planning to go to the below listed fixtures, but as per every pre-season, the schedule will change!
