On Saturday 8th October, Shrewsbury Town Foundation welcomed 11 grassroots teams to a festival on their state-of-the-art 3G pitch.
The foundation reached out to under-7s grassroots clubs across Shropshire and Herefordshire and invited them to come and play fellow local teams. The teams were also given tickets to watch Shrewsbury Town play MK Dons, along with their families.
Steve Brotherwood, operations manager at the foundation, said: “We love being able to bring young players to our facilities as it enables us to bring the community together and be part of Shrewsbury Town FC. It’s fantastic to see so many young players being inspired by the beautiful game!”
The teams that played included Shrewsbury Up and Comers Hawks, Up and Comers Falcons, SAHA Colts, SAHA Jets, Tenbury Utd, Tenbury Tigers, Bayston Hill Tigers, Ludlow Tigers, Ludlow Lions, Wem Town FC, Oswestry Spartans, Mereside Mavericks, Kington FC
All 11 teams complete a lap of honour around the pitch during half-time of Town's game against MK Dons.
The foundation look forward to hosting more festivals across the rest of the season!
