Moors to host landmark fixture
*Panjabi celebration set to be staged at The Automated Technology Group Stadium - by Luke Turner*
Solihull Moors will play host to a landmark friendly game as Panjab FA take on England C at The Automated Technology Group Stadium on Sunday 28 May 2017.

The fixture will take place to help celebrate player opportunity and involvement in Asian football and to promote the Panjabi culture.

Panjabi FA, managed by former Tranmere Rovers and Oldham Athletic defender Reuben Hazell, is a team made up of players from Indian and Pakistani descent.

They finished as runners-up at the 2016 CONIFA World Cup and Panjab FA chairman Harpreet Singh says that the friendly at Moors will be a proud moment for him.

He said: “From the very first day, the objective of Panjab FA was to provide the canvas for the talents of the Panjabi community and British Asian footballers to progress through the football pyramid.

“It’s also a proud moment for me, as a Panjabi, to promote the culture, heritage and identity.

“I want to take this opportunity to reach out to the whole Panjabi and the wider Asian community; the media and public figures to come together and celebrate this new evolution in football.”

Panjab FA’s opponents, Paul Fairclough’s England C, are made up from select under-23 players who play at clubs below the English Football League.

The game will provide the chance for them to continue preparations ahead of their International Challenge Trophy final clash against Slovakia in the summer.

The FA’s Head of Leagues and Clubs, Laurence Jones, said: “Working with Solihull Moors and Panjab FA we hope this is a well-competed game, a family-friendly spectacle and something fans will remember for a long time.”

The match at The Automated Technology Group Stadium will kick-off at 3pm on Sunday 28 May with ticket details to be announced in the near future.
