The event saw forces personnel and their families – along with members of the British Legion – gain free entry to Top Field for their league match with Cirencester Town.

Club stalwart Roy Izzard said: “We were honoured to have the Band of The Queen’s Division at the game as they are one of the top military bands in the country. They’ve toured the world, and we were very lucky to welcome such a prestigious band to Top Field.

“We’d like to extend our thanks to RAF Henlow and 162 Squadron of 254 (East of England Medical Regiment) Army Reserve.”
