Following the reserves’ convincing friendly win over Iranian side A.C. Milan 2009 on Christmas Eve, Brook Street Athletic are delighted to announce that FC Zaporozhets from Ukraine have accepted our invitation, and will visit New Home Park for a friendly match on Hogmanay.

The Ukrainians visit will also see the completion of our “Home” flag collection, leaving only a trip to Vietnam the following week to complete our “Away” set.

“Achieving our final home flag is a great achievement, but it will be tinged with a hint of sadness”, admitted Kyle Fair at the announcement. “It’s been a long time since we played our first ever international friendly at New Home Park, but Wednesday’s match will mark the end of an era”, he added.
