The players will be raising money for Matt and Jacob, along with the British Heart Foundation.

A total of 36 players from Heartbeat United FC will attempt to break a Guinness World Record for the longest-ever continuous football match, to raise money for a memorial dedicated to Albion groundsman Matt Grimstone and REMF player Jacob Schilt.

The match kicks off in the grounds of Lancing College on Thursday 26th May at 6am, with the aim to continue playing until Monday 30th May at 6pm, when the 105-hour record will be broken.
Both Matt and Jacob tragically lost their lives in the Shoreham Airshow disaster last August and the money raised is set to be split to fund a memorial in their honour, along with generating funds for the British Heart Foundation.
Matt’s brother Paul is one of the players taking part in the event and can be sponsored here.


There will be also be two public open days on Sunday 29th and Monday 30th May for all the family to enjoy. Bouncy castles, face painting, raffle draws and silent auctions are among the host of activities on offer.
A number of slots are available for members of the general public to volunteer at the event in a number of wide-ranging roles, including being a physio at the match or to help out with the catering.
