Checkatrade have donated 20 tickets to the County in the Community Walking Football and We Wear the Same Shirt sides to enjoy tonight's Checkatrade Trophy match vs Chelsea U21s.
The tickets were gratefully received and have been taken up by members of the two community teams. The sides will be competing in some friendly kick abouts at half time during the match. These will be taking place on the astroturf behind the goals.
Both the We Wear the Same Shirt and Walking Football teams are looking forward to taking part in the half time kick about and the Club and County in the Community would like to thank Checkatrade for their generosity.
The We Wear the Same Shirt side were featured on ITV Wales News last week enjoying their final training session ahead of the match on Tuesday. Dan Butler was there to support and took part as goalkeeper.
