Festive football fun at the home of Redditch United

Liam Moakes 18th Nov, 2020

LOCKDOWN may have brought a temporary halt to Redditch United’s promising season, but planning for exciting events at the Trico Stadium is continuing at great pace.

An under 16s Christmas festival two-day tournament is being organised to take place at the home of the Reds on December 29 and 30.

A Reds spokesman said: “This is a great opportunity for those involved to play on our first team 3G pitch and get some much-needed minutes in the tank after a month off during lockdown.”

There is a 9.30am registration on day one and 10am kick-off for the first match in the 11-a-side competition.

Matches are 20 minutes and the cost is £10 per team, with entry payable on the day. All teams will play a minimum of four matches regardless of results.

For more details, contact head of academy Wayne Mundon by email at academy@rufcofficial.co.uk.

MEANWHILE, there is still time to apply to Redditch United’s full-time football education programme and get yourself on the squad list for the 2021/22 season.

Interview evening slots for the programme are now available to book by emailing rory.budge@rufcofficial.co.uk.
