VULCAN CUP POSPONED UNTIL AFTER CHRISTMAS
The Vulcan Cup has been a huge success so far and I'd like to thank all players for participating. Unfortunately, due to weather conditions (frozen ground for example which will hurt a player if they fall on it) and organised events, we will not have time to play all the fixtures before we break up for Christmas. I am therefore postponing all fixtures until after the Christmas break.
The Vulcan Cup
Over the course of the next couple of weeks, we will be a lunchtime football league for years 3-6. This league will be split into two separate leagues consisting of an upper and a lower KS2 cup. The matches will be played during lunchtimes and the children will need to be ready for kick off on time. Each team has a designated captain who will liaise with Mr Henfield over any decisions made, squad changes and fixtures.
All fixtures and dates can be found by clicking the link at the bottom of this page.
