On Friday May 12th there will be a clash of the pedagogical titans at Boston United’s York Street ground. The staff of Giles Academy will be taking on the staff of Boston Grammar School in what will no doubt prove to be a thrilling and entertaining feast of football.
The match was the brainchild of the Giles academics, who wanted to raise money for Macmillan Cancer in honour of former Giles Academy teacher Ben Vidler, who sadly passed away earlier this academic year. As such, the two gladiatorial teams will do battle in the Arena of Dreams at the end of which the winners will be presented with The Vidler Trophy.
Ticket prices are £3 for adults and £2 for children and all proceeds will go directly to Macmillan Cancer. Tickets can be purchased from both Giles Academy and Boston Grammar School or alternatively at the turnstiles on the night. The match will also feature a half-time cheerleading show courtesy of Giles Academy’s Performing Arts department. Donations can be made to Macmillan Cancer by contacting Giles Academy on (01205) 870693.
So come along and enjoy a dazzling display of footballing finesse as we try to help football defeat cancer. Kick-off will be at 7pm.
