The Club will be picking up gear once a week to save our supporters postage and packing. if you have purchased goods from Macron, Can you email jeadie1957@sky.com once you have placed an order with your details. I am trying to get some samples for sizing purposes, but supporters who already have our Puma merchandise need to go up 1 size on Macron gear. i.e. Puma medium is a Macron Large.

Held on Friday 27th October 2017 in the clubhouse


As you can see a good time was had by all !


ARMISTICE DAY AT TRAFFORD FC

Our match on Saturday at home to Bamber Bridge falls on the 11th day of the 11thmonth and is Armistice Day. On this day in 1918 the First World War ended and peace was declared.

Since then each year we remember, thank and pay tribute to all our brave servicemen and women who have served their country in the Armed Forces all over the world, both in wartime and in peace, along with all those men and women who are currently serving. Many have made the ultimate sacrifice, giving their lives for us so that we can live our lives in freedom and democracy. On Saturday we shall remember and honour them.

It will be our absolute pleasure to welcome to Shawe View some of these Veterans, who will lead us in our minute’s silence before kickoff and enjoy our hospitality with our sincere thanks and appreciation for their service.


Leading the team out onto the pitch will be;

Guardsman 25163193 James Ferry who served with the Irish Guards for 4 years and left with an exemplary record on compassionate grounds. James will proudly wear the colours of the Irish Guards of blue red blue.

Royal Marine Shane Bennett who served with the Royal Navy for 5 years with operational tours in Afghanistan in force protection. He was attached to Logistics Company, Medical Squadron, 40 & 42 Commando and the Special Boat Service for operational support. On Saturday Shane will proudly wear his regimental blazer.

Quartermaster Sergeant 24519448 Jeff Hawker BEM (British Empire Medal) who served for 37 years in the Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers. Jeff was awarded his British Empire Medal for his services in the first Gulf War and will be proudly wearing his blazer, beret and medals.

W0470215 Dawn Hawker who served for 3 years in the Women’s Royal Army Corps (WRAC). Dawn will proudly wear her service medals.

Kingsman 25130666 Chris Squires who served for 13 years in the British Army with both the King’s Regiment and the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment. Chris did 2 tours in Iraq and 2 in Afghanistan. Chris will also be wearing his blazer, beret and medals with pride.

WAEM (Wren Air Engineering Mechanic) W144158S Claire Wright RN who served for 8 years both with the Royal Navy Reserves aboard HMS Salford and with the Women’s Royal Navy aboard HMS Illustrious, taking tours of duty in the Gulf and Sierra Leone. On Saturday Claire will also proudly wear her service medals.

Chris and Claire went on to set up the Trafford Veterans at The Mess group and carry out fantastic work in our local community to support other retired Armed Forces Veterans.  





Amongst other things they run a Veterans’ Breakfast at the John Alker Club in Flixton every third Saturday in the month from 10am – 12pm where all Veterans and their families are welcome to come and join them for breakfast and a chat amongst friends. If anybody would like any further information about the Veterans’ Group please do talk to Claire and Chris on Saturday or visit them online at this link www.forcesonline.org.uk/veterans-directory/trafford-veterans-at-the-mess/

We hope our very special guests will all enjoy their day with us and we ask that everyone respects the minute’s silence in the impeccable manor with which you always have.

Thanks.

Melody Stephens.
