“It’s a great opportunity for fans to see some of the country’s finest junior players in action and the day is completed by two SNL sides battling to claim the senior trophy.

“With tickets priced at just £10.00 and £5.00 to watch five cup finals I’m sure supporters will agree this is great value for money. I hope they turn out in force to watch all the games.”
