The Offside Trust, which is a partner of Suffolk FA, the Offside Trust is dedicated to keeping all children safe in sport.

Alan Arber of the Offside Trust said: “We are providing the trophies and Offside Trust match balls along with medals for both teams and awards for officials and a man of the match award.
