Default Gold Coast British expats Christmas in July/ Scotland V England Football match

The 8th annual British Christmas in July/ Scotland V England Football match will take place at Southport Soccer Club, Ashmore Park, Mualla Drive, Ashmore on Saturday 12th July from 12:00 noon.
The main feature of the day is the annual Auld Enemy football Match between Scotland (The Celtic Nations) and England. The Scotland team also has players from Ireland and Wales to make up the Celtic Nations.
There is a face painter for the kids (of all ages), bouncy castle, usually free finger food, and a (cheap) bar. Santa makes a visit with gifts for the kids..
Its a great place to meet fellow expats and many people have been coming for years...
All expats are welcome especially new arrivals

British & Irish expats Christmas In July 2014 (12/07/14)

Its that time of year again folks, below is a list of what’s happening on the day and night.

The Football match kicks off at 12
Scotland/ABE (anybody but england) V England
Most people get there for about 11.30am
It’s an annual even that has been going for about 8 years.
The day is free to attend
The will be a free jumping castle and a face painter
It’s a huge family day out starting with the teams being marched out with a piper (who will be little surprise this year)
After the game the winning team will be presented with a trophy.
Then Santa will arrive for free gifts for the children (limited)
With some Christmas music playing. A Christmas dress theme is welcomed.
Then we hope to have the annual tug o war, where the crowd is welcome to take part (small prizes will be awarded to the winners)
The club will have the café open all day to purchase food and soft drinks.
The bar will be open from 11.30am where cheap drink is available.
In the evening the club are supplying a DJ and the knees up begins
The club will also supply free finger food at night.
Everyone is welcome to join in with the whole event. All you have to do is turn up and join the fun.
A flag of your country of origin would be a good idea.
We have a facebook page that you are welcome to join for updates

Have a look through for photos of last year

Southport Soccer Club, Ashmore Park, Mualla Drive, Ashmore
Club website Southport Soccer Club Homepage This is NOT the southport sharks.

Most of they day is funded by the British expats golf players who donate each time they play to fund the day. This year the Southport Soccer club have offered to help with the organisation of the day by funding the jumping castle, face painter and the tug o war.

Remember it’s a free family day and everyone is welcome!
