The Slough Town Supporters Trust is delighted to be working with STFC and STFC Juniors secretary Kay Lathey to bring the National League U11s Cup to the town.
The annual tournament is arranged by the National League Trust, the league’s charitable organisation which provides funding for community projects at National League clubs, aimed at year 6 school teams and takes place with the incentive of the final being played before the playoff final at Wembley in May.
First however, a team is to be selected to represent STFC at the regional finals in the New Year. The Trust and STFC are working to arrange a local tournament for year 6 teams in the girls and mixed/boys categories. Through contacts at the Slough School Sports Network (SSSN), an application form has been distributed to every junior school in the town ahead of the proposed tournament on Thursday 1st November at Arbour Park.
The winner in each category will go to represent the Club at the regional finals in February/March, with North/South finals held in late March. The winners from these will then get their chance at Wembley in May.
This will be the first of a series of planned community-based donations using money left to the Trust by Dave Carpenter (see our earlier news story for information). While half a day of pitch hire is being paid for by a donation given to STFC Juniors, the Trust will allocate some money from Dave’s donation to pay for any extra time needed on the pitch, as well as trophies and medals and two sets of STFC kit for the winning teams to wear at the regional finals.
Schools which are interested should approach Kay Lathey on firstname.lastname@example.org to apply by Friday 19th October or get more information.
Good luck to all the teams entering and we look forward to an exciting day of competition.
