Clash of the County is almost here

Clash of the County, our legends football tournament with Cheltenham Town and Forest Green Rovers, is just around the corner.

On Friday evening (December 2), legends and past heroes of Gloucester City, Cheltenham Town and Forest Green Rovers will battle it out in a round-robin style tournament for the county's bragging rights.

Tickets are available online for the tournament here, with adults paying just £5 for entry and £1 for U16's.

The event kicks off at 7pm and doors open from 6pm, with Mike's Clubhouse Grill open for the evening serving hot food and the 1883 Sports Bar serving refreshments, including Gloucester Brewery's award winning Lager and Session IPA, along with Fox's Kiln Spirits.

We've partnered up with Gloucestershire's leading children's charity the Pied Piper Appeal for the event, with the TigerTurf Stadium being a toy drop station for both new and used toys which will then be donated to various children around the county.

We'll also be raising money at the game for Emily's Gift, a campaign to find finance to hire specialists at the Emily Kent Unit - a children's oncology unit at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.

Here's some of the legends that will be involved in the evening, with a wide range of veterans and iconic players across the three clubs and some last minute call ups also in the works.

Gloucester City: Lee Smith, Will Morford, Marc Richards, Chris Burns, Gary Kemp, Jamie Reid, Andy Hoskins, Adie Harris, Tom King, Lyndon Tomkins, Matt Rose, Neil Griffiths, Jimmy Cox, Neil Mustoe, Matt Sysum with Tom Webb and Kenny Blackburn in the dugout.

Cheltenham Town: Keith Knight, John Brough, Brian Hughes, Michael Jackson, Richard Kear, Steve Benbow, David Norton, Ian Howell, Josh Emery, Andy Gallinagh, Adam Connolly, Michael Wylde, Liam O'Neill.

Forest Green Rovers: Alex Sykes, Paul Hunt, Steve Winter, Matt Coupe, Marc McGregor, Scott Rogers, Danny Bailey, Sekani Simpson, John Cant, Rob Cousins, Paul Tassell.

The format for the event will be three, 30-minute games with 15 minute breaks between each match. Following the conclusion of the games, supporters will be able to meet their former heroes for pictures, autographs or just a good trip down memory lane.

Old rivalries die hard, who will come out on top in the Clash of the County?

We're looking forward to seeing fans of all three clubs coming together for what should be an entertaining evening at the TigerTurf Stadium.
