Ever fancied playing for the Shots Ladies? Now's your chance! The Shots Ladies are set to face the Royal Logistic Corps Ladies during their Corps Open Day on Saturday 26th June and are inviting any interested players for a trial.
With the Army Show not taking place this year, the Royal Logistic Corps will be opening their doors during their annual Open Day on Saturday 26th June and will give Shots Supporters and their families the chance to have a fun day along side our military neighbours as they celebrate with a festival of sport.
As well as having a number of side attractions, including the RLC Museum display focusing on the land transport used during the evacuation of Dunkirk in 1940 as part of the 70th Anniversary Commemorations, the Aldershot Town Ladies have been invited to face their RLC counterparts in a display match and Shots Ladies boss Andy Liddicott is keen to use the fixture to cast his eyes over potential Shots players.
"It's important to keep the link between the British Army and Aldershot Town Football Club going," he told The Stray Shots.
"The girls have had a long season but this match will give us the opportunity to look at a number of trialists ahead of the 2010-11 season and we'd like to hear from anyone out there who would be interested in playing for the Ladies next season.
"We'd like to thank the Royal Logistic Corps for inviting us to play them and it's great that the Football Club can continue to build links with the Army in this way."
The Royal Logistic Corps Open Day is family friendly and suitable for all ages. It takes place at The Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut on Saturday 26th June 2010 between 10am and 4pm and admission is free.
If any players are interested in attending for a trial they are asked to contact manager Andy Liddicott for further details
