Bexley Police FC will play gay-friendly football club Bexley Invicta in a bid to kick homophobia out of the sport.

The two teams will compete for the Aslie Pitter MBE Trophy in support of Football versus Homophobia.

Officers from local police teams will be on hand to talk to residents about police work, local crime and any other concerns.

Acting Sergeant Chris Molnar said: "This is a great opportunity to further establish a strong relationship with Bexley Invicta, as well as a chance for local residents to speak to police.

"This is a family event, so please come down and support us all."

Brian Silk, chairman of Bexley Invicta FC, said: “This game provides an opportunity for Bexley Invicta to further develop our friendship with the local police. Football is a great way to show good relations between the police and local LGBT community.”

The game will be played at the stadium of Thamesmead Town on June 15, kicking off at 12.30pm.

Local residents can watch for free.
