Barton scoop the very first Wren Cup! Sorry Scunthorpe…

A huge thank you to all the lads that stepped up and got involved. With player fees of £5 to charity, and entry fee on the gate, we managed to raise £284 on the night! The guys at Barton Town Ground were impressed with the standard of playing, and will be sure to welcome us back for a future tournament. We’re really grateful for them letting the lads battle it out on their field of dreams!

With special thanks to…
  • Pete and Owen at Barton Town Ground for letting us play, and for arranging referees and linesmen, as well as gatesman and an announcer!
  • Laura who kept us well fed on the night.
  • Zebra Print Management for kindly donating a banner to help us advertise the event.
  • Scott Reynolds for putting together his Scunthorpe team, and traveling over to Barton for the match.
  • Paul Dean for arranging the Nest team and keeping them in check.
  • All the spectators who came to support the lads and put up with a bit of rain!

So The Nest holds the Wren Cup for now, who will take it next? I’ve heard the Barton warehouse boys have got their eyes on it…
