Beavers and Ammies raising money for Bliss

11 months ago By Rob Overfield

The two clubs are coming together to raise funds for Bliss, a charity working for premature and sick babies.

Saturday 29th will see the clubs go head-to-head in their annual pre-season friendly for the third year running.

It is the second time the Beavers are hosting at The Beveree, and to add to the Sky Sports rivalry between Martin Tyler (also a first team coach at HRBFC) and Gary Neville (one of the owners of SCFC), the two clubs will be playing for The Jacob Sylvester Trophy, in which all proceeds will be donated to Bliss.

The day will also include fun for all the family, including a raffle, bake sale, bouncy castle and much more.

Both teams have already made plenty of announcements and changes over the summer, which have sparked excitement for next season.

Following promotion in 2015/16, Hampton & Richmond reached the National League South playoffs in April, awarding manager Alan Dowson a full-time contract. With new directors in place, the club are looking to build on the success of last year, and start their season with some silverware.

As for Salford City, having already made 11 signings this summer, they too will be looking to begin their campaign showcasing new talent. The newly promoted Ammies reached the playoffs of the National League North, however narrowly missed out on a place in the Conference, after their penalty shootout defeat to Halifax Town.
