Bray People - - SPORT -

ARK­LOW Town FC, Grey­stones Utd FC and Wick­low Rovers AFC will be tak­ing part in this year’s Volk­swa­gen Ju­nior Masters when the tour­na­ment kicks off on Satur­day, Au­gust 12, at the A.U.L Com­plex at Dublin Air­port.

The Volk­swa­gen Group an­nounced that Ark­low Town FC, Grey­stones Utd FC and Wick­low Rovers AFC would be com­pet­ing in one of the most pres­ti­gious un­der­age soc­cer tour­na­ments in Ire­land, along with 15 other teams from around the coun­try.

Now in its fourth year, the tour­na­ment has grown sig­nif­i­cantly in terms of its recog­ni­tion and im­por- tance amongst the Ir­ish grass­roots soc­cer com­mu­nity.

The stakes are high with the win­ning team to ben­e­fit with a €2,500 grant for their club, while all com­pet­ing teams will re­ceive an Um­bro team kit for the com­pe­ti­tion.

There are 16 teams par­tic­i­pat­ing in this year’s 11-a-side tour­na­ment.

The group stages, in which there are four groups of four teams, will be played on Satur­day, Au­gust 12, with the semi-fi­nals and fi­nals tak­ing place on Sun­day, Au­gust 13t.

The Grand Fi­nal will take place at 2.45pm on the Sun­day af­ter­noon.
