During last night’s friendly fixture between the Lionesses and the Matildas at the Brentford Stadium, both teams took to the pitch with a third of the shirts not featuring the players names on the back in support of the Alzheimer’s Society.

The aim was to draw attention to the fact that one in three people born in the UK will develop dementia.

From half time different players wore nameless shirts to draw attention to the confusion and memory loss that is experienced with people living with dementia.

The matchworn shirts from the ‘Alzheimer’s Society International’ will be auctioned off to raise awareness and funds for the dementia charity.

Kate Lee, Alzheimer’s Society CEO, said: “We hope by making this simple alternation with this gesture and getting both teams to show a sign of solidarity, we can put an important spotlight on just how much dementia can devastate lives.

“I hope it makes a massive impact from the stands to screens, inspiring people to donate so we can reach even more people with our life-changing support, which helps people through some of the hardest and most frightening times.”

Australia ended England’s 30 game unbeaten run by beating the Lionesses 0-2.
