Wisbech St Mary under 11s won a tournament at Premiership side Aston Villa.

Saints played on the pitch and entered the changing rooms, players lounge and walked through the tunnel at Villa Park. They competed against strong sides all representing their leagues throughout the midlands.

Boss John Rowe said: “This was by far the hardest most competitive tournament the lads have been involved in. To play on a Premiership side’s pitch is a memorable moment for any youngster playing the game.”

Team: William Pentelow, Ben Porter, Robert Lee, Harrison Burrows, Owen Gilbert, Lee Hunt, Ajay Jolly, Ethan Burgess, Joshua Gear.

It is back with a recording-breaking number of entries with well over 300 teams for the two days, compared to last year’s 180-odd sides. Youth, girls and ladies football feature, with the action beginning around 10am on both days. For more details call Mark Miller on 07823 332991.
