FA Women’s National League XI face England All-Stars in Charity Trophy.
England international legend Kelly Smith will be lining up for the England All-Stars in the Charity Trophy on Sunday 12 August.
The FA Women’s National League is delighted to support the Grenfell Foundation and the Harrow Club in this season’s Charity Trophy on Sunday 12 August at the Hive.
A select team representing the FA WNL will take on a host of ex-England stars and will be managed by former Arsenal Ladies manager Vic Akers OBE.
All-star players competing include Kelly Smith, Rachel Yankey, Marieanne Spacey-Cale, Jodie Handley, Rachel Unitt and Casey Stoney.
FA WNL Chairman Carol West said on The FA website: “The Grenfell Tower tragedy continues to affect those that lost friends, family and loved ones as well as those still living in its shadow in the local community, we are honoured and humbled to be able to have the opportunity to support such deserving charities and hope we get a big crowd to raise as much money as possible.”
Kelly Smith added: “The Grenfell tragedy was horrific and touched so many people, so when I was asked to get involved in this game, I jumped at the chance. It will be great to catch up with former team-mates and friends, and hopefully we can raise a lot of money for this great cause.”
Tickets for the game are £5 for adults, £3 for U16s and OAPs and U3s go free. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 25 July.
The Grenfell Foundation is a charitable organisation set up this year at the request of bereaved and survivors from the Grenfell Tower fire.
It will provide support and assistance to the generations affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy for years to come, with an emphasis on community, wellbeing and education.
Thanks to donations, the Foundation will soon be opening up a grant system to support community-led projects that work in these areas.
