World Cup fever grips Redditch as England prepare for Panama clash

Harry Leach 23rd Jun, 2018

WORLD Cup fever has gripped the country and Redditch is no exception.

And at the appropriately named Sportsmans Arms they’re going football crazy for the England versus Panama game on Sunday.

The Peakman Street pub will not only be showing the match but serving Indian and Chinese food free-of-charge for customers.

Landlord Keith Jones said: “I took over the pub five months ago and I’m always looking for ways to improve it.

“It will be a great atmosphere – we have a really good chance to qualify – It will be a fascinating game to watch.”

England vs Panama will be shown live on BBC1 on June 24 at 1pm.
