For the last event, the 25th anniversary, a 35 minutes each way match will kick-off at 3pm on Saturday July 19 made up of two squads from England and Scotland, as the original memorial did and all previous players of 35 years old or more are welcome to join in.

Steve Murphy is the England team manager and can be contacted on 07771845691 while Stuart Anderson is Scotland boss and is on 07738207772.

Other events on the day will be announced in the Andover Advertiser.
