A football match has been arranged to promote and raise funds for a newly-formed team.

The new Little Clacton side will visit FC Clacton’s Rush Green Bowl on Saturday, May 5 (kick-off 7pm).

Entry will be just £1.

Little Clacton will compete in next season’s Colchester and East Essex League and play their home games at Plough Corner.

They have already received a major helping hand in terms of sponsorship, from Precision Property Repairs.

Wick Lodge, in Jaywick Lane, have also put some money forward to help buy the team’s away kit.
