Each year local amateur football club Baguley Athletic hold a Memorial Cup match accompanied by a Family Fun Day. This year the event is going to be even bigger – and you’re invited.
From 1pm on Sunday 28th August you can enjoy a fun day out at Wythenshawe Cricket Club, Longley Lane, Northenden – so just down the road – which will include a bouncy castle, giant slide, 50ft Obstacle Course, rodeo bull, archery, climbing wall, donkey rides, children’s fairground rides and games, games stalls, fire engine from Civic Fire Station, face painting/glitter tattoos and a Tombola (so far!).
As you can see, something for everyone.
Then, at 3pm, the Memorial Cup match itself kicks off. Baguley Athletic, Manchester Saturday Football League Division 2 Champions last season, take on Manchester East bidding to retain the trophy they won against Wythenshawe Town in 2015.
The standard of football is high and the club will be using the game as a pre-season as they embark on their first season in Division 1 so it’ll be competitive too.
It promises to be a great day out for everyone and as it’s a Bank Holiday you don’t have to worry about work on the Monday either!
Here’s last season’s match action to whet your appetite:
