United toast Pilgrim Cup success

1 week ago By Craig Singleton

RAF College Cranwell played host to the annual Pilgrim Cup tournament at the weekend.

Over 130 teams took part across the prestigious two-day event, which was played in glorious sunshine throughout, with all age groups represented from under-7s through to under-16s.

Teams came from far and wide including Birmingham City, Cardiff City, Leeds United, Nottingham Forest, Preston North End, Stoke City, Sunderland and Welsh side The New Saints, plus neighbours Lincoln City.
 
United chairman David Newton told bufc.co.uk: "It was a tremendous advert for elite football and my thanks go to everybody who took part across the weekend. There was some excellent football played and it was great to have so many established clubs with us.
 
"Through extensive planning, the weekend ran very smoothly and I would like to pay tribute to everybody who helped run the event, from our staff members to our volunteers and college students who made everything go smoothly. The staff at RAF Cranwell could not have been more helpful.
 
"We received fantastic feedback from clubs attending and we look forward to welcoming everybody back again in 2019 and building on the success of this year's event."
