Every year, since 2015, we give out 400 Replica shirts children in Year 3, in the local area.
The dedicated game for the 2019/20 campaign will be our match with Colchester United on Saturday, September 14.
Every primary school in Gloucestershire is included in the offer along with the FGR ambassador primary schools.
It’s been proven that children around the age of seven pick the football club they will go on to support for the rest of their lives, so this is our way of encouraging them to choose their local team.
Parents of children who are eligible for the offer can register online and the shirts will be available for collection at a specified match at The New Lawn. A valid birth certificate or passport is required to be able to collect the shirt.
The eligible child, along with a parent, will also receive a free ticket to the game when they pick up their shirt, so they can enjoy the match in our Community Stand.
We also organise a group photo in front of the pitch, involving all of the children in their new FGR shirts.
