Teams wanted for foot­ball tour­na­ment at city park

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

A WORLD Cup themed foot­ball tour­na­ment will be held in Cen­tral Park to co­in­cide with the kick-off of the Peter­bor­ough Fes­ti­val this week­end.

Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil is or­gan­is­ing the com­pe­ti­tion and wants young peo­ple to cre­ate five-a-side teams to take part.

Two com­pe­ti­tions will run - one for un­der 14s and an­other for un­der 16s - and it is de­signed to bring young­sters from dif­fer­ent cul­tures to­gether through foot­ball.

Sup­ported by or­gan­i­sa­tions in­clud­ing Peter­bor­ough United Foot­ball Club, the tour­na­ment for un­der 16s will take place on Satur­day, with the un­der 14s play­ing on Sun­day.

Teams are re­quired to be at the park at 9am on the day of the com­pe­ti­tion with five play­ers for reg­is­tra­tion.

They will be asked pick a coun­try to rep­re­sent on the day.

En­try is £10 per per­son and the first match will kick off at 10am, on both days.

The city coun­cil is keen to get as many peo­ple in­volved in the event, and so wants peo­ple who are not play­ing foot­ball to go to the park and cheer on the teams.

To en­ter a team, young­sters need to call Ja­son Horne on 07920 160105 or email ja­son.horne@peter­bor­ough.gov.uk.

But teams need to hurry, as the dead­line for en­tries ends at 5pm to­day.
