Reply with quote

I'm aware of at least 3 games... with corresponding programmes... held in the opening fortnight of 1982-83 to raise £ for the South Atlantic Fund.

It was a benevolent scheme for Falklands War servicemen and their families.


Saturday 31st July 1982
Arbroath v Dundee





Monday 2nd August 1982
Aldershot v Manchester United





Friday 13th August 1982
Plymouth Argyle v Everton





Of course Aldershot and Plymouth hosted major army and navy bases.

Arbroath was one of the principal centres of the Royal Marines.

Were there any other matches?
