Football fans are being invited to sign up for a special festive fixture coming to Waterlees in Wisbech this month.

Teams of up to seven players, aged 14 and over, are being sought for a Christmas football tournament taking place at the Lime Avenue green on December 20.

The event, organised by Fenland District Council’s Active Fenland team and Cambridgeshire children’s coaching company, All 4 Sports, kicks off at noon and runs until 3pm.

There will be medals, trophies and goodies to be won, along with mince pies and refreshments.

Councillor Michelle Tanfield, the council’s portfolio holder for leisure, said: “Activity levels in Wisbech are lower than the national average, so it’s great to see multi-sport sessions and now a football tournament being organised to really encourage residents to get together and get more active.

“This will be a great community event just before Christmas, and we hope to see as many people as possible come and join in the fun.”

For more information or to enter a team, contact All 4 Sports in advance on 07979 346260.
