Boston Town will kick off their UCL Premier season on Saturday - but the Poachers will also be celebrating the Sir Bobby Robson National Football Day.

The event is a celebration of grassroots football, and the 400,000 volunteers who do their bit to make sure we

have a national game.

It also means free admission to the game for some youngsters, as the club is one of 150 to take part in the celebrations.

Sir Bobby Robson National Football Day has been created by the FA to honour the late, great England manager and also the unsung heroes of the sport.

The day will carry Sir Bobby’s name and, in turn, raise awareness of the work of his cancer charity — the Sir Bobby

Robson Foundation.

Town will host Cogenhoe United at Tattershall Road on Saturday (KO 3pm), and the Sir Bobby Robson National Football Day

will coincide with the start of many leagues.

Town was chosen to be one of 150 community football clubs to host the event.

Club director Eddie Graves said: “The club was extremely honoured to be chosen as one of the 150 clubs to be chosen.

“On August 10 Boston Town will be playing Cogenhoe United to celebrate Sir Bobby Robson National Football Day.

“Boston Town would encourage our fans and supporters to help us create the game that everyone can be part of and proud of by getting involved.

“Children under sixteen will be admitted free with an accompanying adult.”
