Time to dig out the shin pads, tighten your studs and lace up those boots for the return of the bi-annual Hong Kong Fence Club charity football match in 2020.

Next year’s match, a highlight in the toy calendar, will kick off at 6.30pm on Tuesday 7 January.

The game is open to all trade footballers, ex-footballers (‘with a nagging knee injury, just stick me back-left for the first half’), refs and linesmen, so if you’d like to take part, get in touch with Character Options’ very own David Bramford today.

As in previous years, the fixture pits The Fence Club team against a select HK team at the Happy Valley Stadium, followed by a meal and presentations. The final ticket price is still to be confirmed, but the event is always a brilliant opportunity for some friendly competition, lots of laughs and, most importantly, fundraising for a worthy cause.

So put the date in your diary to avoid late appointments clashing with a night the entire UK toy contingent looks forward to, and let your colleagues know – the more the merrier.

If your company would like to help make the 2020 match extra special by going beyond the normal programme sponsorships, then do speak to David – the team aims to make it the biggest and best event yet.

Sources close to the squad have confirmed to TNP.MEDIA that The Fence Club team have been training extra hard this year, with a strict fitness regime and high-protein diet – so who knows, they might even win this time!
