Sign up to be a Wisbech Acorn

FOOTBALL loving youngsters in Wisbech who are interested in becoming part of a local team are being encouraged to head to the Horsefair Shopping Centre.

Wisbech Town Acorns Football Club will be at the centre’s bus station from 10am to 2pm on Saturday to sign up new recruits and promote the club.

“We’re looking to recruit both girls and boys under 18 to play and train with the Acorns; we have various teams with the youngest being the under-sevens. Teams are split up into age groups so youngsters will always play with the same ages with similar abilities,” said Acorns chairman, Rob Gifford.

The Horsefair sponsors the Acorns under 18s and centre manager Kevin Smith said: “The club does a fantastic job for local youngsters and I am sure the recruitment drive at the centre will be a successful one.”
