Football Returns to the Recreation Ground

We are pleased to announce that over the last few weeks, the parish council have been working with Chesterton Football club to secure the use of our recreation ground for their extended season (their usual grounds are being used for cricket). This will encompass both training and match day games for the veterans and Under 10’s teams. Although only for a short while initially, both parties will be looking to see if this could be an ongoing agreement.

 

Training will be taking place between 17:30 and 20:30 on Tuesday evenings starting on the 6th April. Current match days are scheduled as below –

All games kick off at 10:30 unless noted

10th April (KO 09:00 TBC)

25th April

2nd May

8th May (KO 09:00 TBC)

9th May

15th May (KO 09:00 TBC)

16th May

22nd May (KO 09:00 TBC)

23rd May

6th June

13th June

Some of these dates may change and could be played at away grounds dependent on pitch availability.

A few of the vets team are ex-players of our own village football squad from years gone by – it would be great to see some village support (whilst observing current government social distancing guidelines) on match days as we welcome football back to the recreation ground!.
