The football season may be nearly over, but another must-see match has been added to the calendar – Lincolnshire Fire Service v Lincolnshire Police.

Kick-off is at 3pm on Saturday, May 10, at Lincoln’s Sincil Bank Stadium.

After 2013’s thriller at the Bank, seeing Lincolnshire Police narrowly win on penalties, both teams are fired up for the game being dubbed ‘The Rematch’.

A red hot fire and rescue team boasts Grimsby Town legend Stacy Coldicott, members of the England Fire Service football team and a number of players from Lincolnshire’s local leagues.

Dave Gilbert, station manager at Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue, said: “Having the chance to play at Sincil Bank Stadium for a second time is a fantastic opportunity.

“It promises to be an exciting match if 2013 is anything to go by, so please come and support us.

“Any donations to our charities will be greatly appreciated.”

Gates open for the game at 1.30pm and parking is available on South Common.

Entry to the game is free, but fans can make a donation to the Fire Fighters Charity and the Police Treatment Centre.

Both teams are looking to build on the £300 raised for the charities last year, with the funds helping to provide therapy and support to injured servicemen and their families.
