Belper Town FC is to play an exhibition friendly at our own Marston’s Stadium with none other than the prestigious Real Madrid! It’s all been arranged to honour grassroots football, with lucky Nailers having their name pulled out of a hat, and the announcement being held back until just a few days ahead of the game, and even then only to those managing to spot the news on the club’s fixtures board (pictured).
With the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale showing off all their tricks and flicks to try and beat the Nailers’ defence, it should certainly be an entertaining watch! So get yourself down to Belper Town this Friday to witness first-hand what should be a thoroughly enjoyable spectacle! Be warned that traffic will be heavier than usual, as fans pour down to catch sight of a few celebrities.
