ORGANISERS of a community football tournament are urging more men to sign up for the event.

The Dads' World Cup event is being held on Saturday, June 19, as part of a free family fun day at Kirkley Community High School in Kirkley Run, Lowestoft.

The organisers, at NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney, are keen for dads to sign up to take part in the competition.

Tracey Read, health promotion practitioner for NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney, said: “We need teams of dads - and their friends, sons, brothers - of all ages and abilities to sign up. You don't have to be a brilliant football player.

“This is a really fun event, especially with the real World Cup happening this year, and is open to all the family. There will be so many activities going on as well as the tournament.”

The day will kick-off from 11am and as well as the football match there will physical activity sessions for the family, dance classes, aerobics, martial arts tasters as well as a bouncy castle and a children's entertainer.

Lowestoft College, Tesco Beccles and South Lowestoft's Children's Centres are all supporting the event.

The winning team will receive a trophy, which has been donated by Tesco Beccles in Station Road.

Abi Fiske, Community Champion for Tesco's Beccles said: “We are pleased to support what will be a great day out for the whole family.”
