Leamington FC director Graham Moody said: "The idea of it is that it is a way for the National Lottery to say 'thank you' to its players for the support they helped it to give to clubs throughout the UK during the Covid lockdowns.

"National Lottery players can buy one ticket and get one for free to showcase the things clubs at our level do in the local communities.

"The fixture for us is our home game against Darlington on Saturday April 2."
