Over 300 children to participate in Kinder & Sports Kids Cup.
Colchester United's Football in the Community will be hoisting the annual Kinder + Sport Kids Cup tournament, which is due to commence on Friday 30th January.
Children from across the Colchester area will participate in a great football tournament this Friday for the chance to progress to the Area Final and the chance to play at Wembley Stadium.
The community team have over 30 schools from around Essex coming to participate in the competition, with the winners going on to represent Colchester United in an area final.
The tournament has been a success in recent years, however the 2014/15 season is set to be our biggest yet, as the U's have increased our participation numbers by more than 100%.
The girls tournament was held at the end of 2014, with Moulsham High in Chelmsford progressing to the Area Final - a stage from which they also emerged victorious earlier in January.
300 children in Years 5/6 will attend the event, with the Colchester United Football in the Community staff putting on coaching sessions for those schools who are awaiting their next fixture.
