Pirelli FC U10 girls and Carlisle Reivers U10 girls were invited to play on the Brunton Park pitch at half time during the Cambridge United game.
Both teams competed well with some great goals scored, and some great saves, and they were able to watch our game against Cambridge United as part of the club’s growing Play-on-the-Pitch scheme.
At most home games we have local teams attending and Saturday was no exception.
Every season CUFC gives free tickets to local teams in the area, offering a memorable experience to those taking part and helping the club develop its next generation of fans
Both teams are invited to the Family Zone to meet players not involved in the squad that day, before they then go into the Pioneer Stand where they are visited by mascot Olga the Fox.
The main event is, of course, a football match at half time on the pitch! Parents and guardians are invited to watch and are able to purchase a half-price ticket for the match, and children from other age groups can also come along to support their club mates with free tickets.
A big thanks to John Halpin and his team at the Carlisle United Community Sports Trust who work hard to make their day special.
