Slimbridge Festival of Football attracts the crowd to Thornhill Park

The Slimbridge Festival of Football, organised by Slimbridge AFC and Slimbridge YFC proved a resounding success at Thornhill Park on Sunday, with an estimated 1000 people coming in through the gates during the course of the day. With the pitch divided into four, 41 teams competed at Under 10, 11, 13 and 14 level in a day long football extravaganza.

Both the Senior and Youth organisations received very positive feedback from many Clubs and Managers involved on the day, and would like to thank all the volunteers, sponsors and teams who supported the venture, and helped make it so successful.

As a highly successful season for the senior side finally draws to a close, there are two further events scheduled in the Clubhouse at Thornhill Park before the Summer break – The Club AGM is on Monday 16th May in the Clubhouse, with a 7pm start, and the End of Season Presentation night on Friday 20th May, with an 8pm Kick Off. Everyone welcome to both events.
