The club’s admin manager Natasha Hook said: ‘The football club are looking to beat their highest attendance record, which was 4,770, a match between Gosport and Pegasus in the 1953 FA Amateur Cup.

‘The aim of the event is to raise money for the charity Rays of Sunshine, a children’s charity with the purpose of brightening the lives of seriously-ill children aged three to 18 by granting wishes and organising large scale events. All proceeds from the event go to the charity, collections will be taking place on the gate.’

Tickets are free of charge and available from

Gates for the match open at 1pm and kick-off is at 3pm.
