Chance for young players to play at Sixfields
We are now taking entries for the 2017 Cobblers Cup.
The Cobblers Cup is a football tournament for youth football teams that runs from U7’s through to U10’s with teams getting to play on the pitch at Sixfields, just like the pros and will take place on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May.
The under 7s will play on Saturday 27th May 930am-12.30pm, with the under 9s from 1pm - 5.30pm.
The under 8s will play on Sunday 28th May 930am-12.30pm, with the under 10s from 1pm - 5.30pm.
The tournament is 6 a side, with squads of 9 players, although additional players can be added at a cost of £5 each. Each u7 and u8 team will get the full 40 minutes of football allowed in a day, while u9 and u10 teams will each play in a 16 team competition.
Each match will be played with roll on, roll off substitutes and all games will be played on the Sixfields pitch.
Car parking is £2, with entry into the stadium £2 for adults and free for under 16s.
Spaces are already filling up fast with previous entrants keen to return, so please act fast if you want to be part of what is sure to be a sell out weekend.
