Maidstone Borough Council (MBC) and Maidstone Police are fund raising for local charity ‘More Than Words’ by going head to head in a football match Friday 17 September at Maidstone United’s Gallagher Stadium.

Tickets are £5 each (cash payments only) with under 16’s free and everyone is welcome to come along, kick off is at 7.30pm and gates will be open from 6.30pm.

The two teams last battled it out two years ago with the Police narrowly winning, so staff at MBC are hoping for victory.

Steve Noble, MBC Community Protection Officer who has been involved in organising the match said:

“This friendly match is to try and raise money for such a worthy local charity, ‘More Than Words’ raises money for children with disabilities to help provide services to improve their lives.

“We work closely with our colleagues at Maidstone Police and get on really well with them, but we will put all that aside on Friday night and bring back the football crown for MBC!”

Paul Hughes from Kent Police said:

"We have heard that our MBC colleagues have been training hard to reach the performance levels of our team so it should be a great game but confident it will be 2 out of 2 for Maidstone Police. But most importantly I am extremely grateful for all the players that are taking part and raising funds for More Than words, especially in the current climate where fundraising for small charities has been extremely difficult.”
