Dr Iain Adams' play 'A Game for Christmas' will form part of the opening ceremony for a new National Football Museum exhibition.
'The Greater Game: Football and The First World War' explores the role football played at home and at the front during the war years, and looks in detail at some of those who served.
Cheetham Primary School pupils (pictured during rehearsals) will perform Dr Adams' work which has been made available to all schools through the 'National Children's Football Alliance' website.
The exhibition runs from 19 December 2014 to 2 September 2015. For further information please click here.
Dr Adams has also just returned from giving a talk about the Truce at the Hærens Officersskol, The Royal Danish Army Officer academy (the equivalent of Sandhurst) in Copenhagen.
