“It’s really exciting for the local community and a chance for Cheddar to showcase its facilities and demonstrate what it is all about,” said Cheddar manager Craig Mawford.

“It’s nice for some publicity for the club and a reward for all the efforts of those people working behind the scenes. Hopefully it will spark the interest of people and they will go and have a look.”

As for the players on show, Mawford added: "(It will) be fantastic to see. Little bits of the way they play won’t have changed, like the way they move with the ball and first touch, range of passing.

“It should be a really nice opportunity to watch some enjoyable football.”

With supporters allowed to attend Mawford said, with excitement, it will be “lovely to have some form of normality again”.

And he hopes this can spur people on to come down and watch his side once the new Toolstation Western League season starts on July 31.

“I think we are all looking forward to that and seeing more people at games,” he said.

“It would be lovely if it encouraged more people to come down and watch the remainder of the club when they are in action.”
