Personnel from British Forces Cyprus and the National Guard came together recently to take part in a friendly football match in Episkopi to reinforce the close ties that exist between the two forces.
The match, which took place in Happy Valley, was drawn 5-5 but the result was secondary to the symbolism of the game according to 1st Lieutenant Vassiliou from the National Guard.
Speaking after the match finished, he said: “It was with great pleasure that we took part in the football match between the 4th CRC (based in Troodos) and British Forces Cyprus.
“The football match was arranged within the framework of cooperation of our country's forces and it was intended to reinforce that cooperation climate.”
