RUCST | Trust calls on schools to sign up for Kinder +Sport EFL Cups

8 November 2016


Dear Football Fans,

As the new season starts gaining momentum, the coaches, players and backroom staff at Rotherham United are working hard to provide a successful season for our fans.

We’ll be doing our very best this season, but we now need your help to try and bring the prestigious Kinder + Sport EFL Girls Cup and Kids Cup trophies back to the New York Stadium. Last year over 2,000 schools entered the (two) competitions, with the finalists getting the chance to play at Wembley Stadium.

The road to Wembley starts in September when our club will organise local competitions for all local schools who wish to take part. The Girls Cup is for under 13 girls and the Kids Cup is for under 11 children, and the winning schools will win the right to represent us in the national stages of the tournament and could progress all the way to the final for the prize of a lifetime – playing football at Wembley stadium.

There are thousands of professional footballers that have never got to play at Wembley, so to be in with a chance of stepping onto the hallowed turf is a spectacular opportunity. Not even Pele, one of the greatest players of all time, got to play at Wembley Stadium!

Last season, Oakwood High School did a great job of flying the flag for Rotherham United in the Girls Cup and Thorpe Hesley Primary School represented us in the Kids Cup, but we know there are loads of great school teams in our area and many of you will want the chance to show off your skills at the home of football.

So what are you waiting for? Why not take the chance to go down in history at your school and become local heroes by proudly representing your local League club?!

To express your interest and sign up today please contact us via jrawlinson@rotherhamunited.net
