SSAFA Derbyshire FC
Manager: Kerion Debrouwer

The SSAFA Forces Help team were formed when Jack Hawksley, a young soldier from Pinxton, was seriously injured whilst serving in Afghanistan last year.

Jack’s injuries from the blast, which occurred just two days before he was due to complete his tour, were so severe that he needed two below-knee amputations.

Profits raised from this charity encounter will go directly towards the SSAFA, whilst admission prices have been set at £3 Adults and £1 Senior Citizens/Under 16s
