Suffolk FA Mini Soccer & Youth Football Development Officer, who is co-organising the event, said: “We have worked hard this year to provide as many opportunities for Youth players to experience our Grassroots Festival.

“Rather than band age groups together we have developed a scheduled that allows each age group to have their own festival, which also provides us the chance for more teams across the weekend.

“As well as our girls’ and mixed festivals and Wot’s Up iCan Football League festivals from last year, we are adding for the first time a Youth Disability festival through our Wots Up League clubs and Walking Football for our walking football centres throughout Suffolk.

“Registrations will go live on the Suffolk FA website on Monday, April 1st 2019 at 5pm and through emails sent to club secretaries.

“There will be limited spaces available for the individual spaces, so please be ready to sign up using your FAN and Password or risk missing out on this year’s festival!”
