The final was recently abandoned after Shepherds player Rhys Wilkinson suffered a broken leg and had to be taken to hospital.

Entry fee into the ground for the rearranged game will be on a voluntary basis upon arrival with all the proceeds donated to Rhys Wilkinson and his family.

With Rhys having a young family and not being able to work due to the injury his teammate James Eyles has set up a gofundme page to raise money to help him at this tough time.
