Craig Gibbons 28th Oct, 2017

TALENTED young footballers will once again get the chance to grace the turf at the Trico Stadium as the Redditch United Schools Cup Final returns next week.

Ipsley Academy and Woodrush High School will contest the final on Thursday (2pm kick-off).

Year 8 teams from secondary schools in the town have played each other in two leagues, with play-offs used to decide who progressed through to the final at the home of Redditch United.

First organised in 2010 by TRUST – the Redditch United Supporters Club – in liaison with the club and Redditch Sports Partnership, the competition aims to strengthen the club’s links with the community.

The competition is a popular occasion and is well-supported by pupils and parents. Reds boss Darren Byfield will present the cup and medals after the final.
