Alcester Town all set for big football fundraiser
NEARLY 1,000 juniors will descend on Alcester Town this weekend as a hugely popular youth football festival makes a welcome return to the calendar.
A total of 96 teams ranging from U7s to U14s across south Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and Birmingham will be competing in the annual tournament which takes place on Saturday and Sunday.
This is the first time since 2019 the Romans have been able to host the fundraiser due to Covid-19.
On average the tournament raises between £8,000 and £10,000, a vital cash injection which helps the club purchase new equipment and boost the playing facilities at the Stratford Road Ground.
Having missed out on two years’ worth of crucial cash, club chiefs are excited for the youth tournament’s return this weekend.
