This one-off game is a recreation of a match that was held at the club 100 years ago between Worthing Ladies’ XI and Wounded Soldiers from the Grange Auxiliary Hospital.
The Grand Football Match, as it was also originally called, aims to be as authentic as possible, with WWI themed sounds, dress, atmosphere and refreshments. There will be live music from Lancing Brass Band and 1066 Pipes & Drums marching band, chances to win prizes, and more!
All spectators are encouraged to dress-up in period dress from the WWI era, with prizes for the best dressed!
