Haverhill venue in breakthrough youth football arrangement
Suffolk FA and the New Croft in Haverhill will break new ground this season by staging a semi-finals ‘Festival of Football’ day.
Nine of the ten youth county cup competitions – the Under-18 Midweek Cup being the exception – will take place at the same venue on the same day.
The New Croft facility in Chalkstone Way will host the ‘Festival of Football’ on Sunday, March 12.
Suffolk FA County Cup Competitions Manager Adrian Moye said: “My intention through all the Cup competitions for juniors and adults alike is to spread the venues across our wonderful county as much as I can.
“This is a new venture for Suffolk FA and is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate our cup competitions at a neutral (for most) ground with neutral match officials.”
