Scores between rival police forces will be settled on the pitch to boost a Moray group’s campaign to take control of a football pitch.
Officers from the RAF police and Police Scotland will go head-to-head to raise funds for the Lesser Borough Briggs Community Trust.
The group is preparing a bid to Moray Council to take control of the land next to the River Lossie in Elgin to maintain the pitches.
The grassland is currently held in trust for the people of the town by the local common good fund.
Dozens of children at a time have been playing on the park during the summer holidays as part of coaching classes.
And if the group’s plans are approved then an artificial surface could be put down on the grassland to allow sessions to take place whatever the weather.
Now the two police forces have pledged their support by asking fans to make donations to the trust as they make their way through the gates to a charity match between the sides.
Sergeant Dave Halil, from the RAF police, said: “We try to have a football match against our Police Scotland colleagues every year.
“We work really closely with them to ensure the safety and security of not just the RAF base, and RAF families in Lossiemouth and Elgin, but the whole community in the area.”
The match will kick off at Elgin City FC’s ground, Borough Briggs, on Monday, August 7 at 7pm.
