THE TRICO Stadium will again play host to the Redditch United Schools Cup Final when St Bede’s take on Walkwood on Thursday (7.30pm).
The Schools Cup was first organised in 2010 by TRUST (Redditch United Supporters Club) in liaison with the club and Redditch Sports Partnership. It was intended to further strengthen the club’s links with the community, which then and current chairman Chris Swan and his late wife Sallie have achieved since taking over.
Year eight teams from the middle schools in Redditch play each other in two leagues, with play-offs to decide who goes through to the final at the home of the Reds.
Walkwood won the inaugural final and have won the cup three times, St Bede’s and Woodrush have triumphed twice and Ipsley once.
Spectators are welcome and the bar will be open.
