GALLERY: Youngsters shine at Wisbech St Mary’s two-day football tournament

HUNDREDS of young footballers descended on Wisbech St Mary at the weekend for the football club’s annual two-day tournament.

More than 200 teams and a crowd of spectators filled the Hudson Playing Fields for competitions on Saturday and Sunday.

A host of six-a-side games took place on Saturday, from boys under-7s to under-12s. The under-11 girls were also in action.

Boys and girls were back on the pitch for Sunday’s five-a-side contests, which saw young stars from under-13s to under-17s compete.

Club secretary Claire Jimson said: “The weekend went really well. We had lots of teams attend and the weather held up for us.

“We were only expecting teams from around Cambridgeshire but we had sides coming across from Northampton, Lowestoft and even Great Yarmouth!”
