It all starts on Saturday 22nd June, with a disability tournament.  Representative teams from Aston Villa, Watford, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City, MK Dons, Middlesbrough, Millwall and Swansea City will all be taking part, along with our Norwich City FC team. The tournament starts at 11am and finishes at 3pm – spectators are welcome!

A large selection of hot and cold food and refreshments will be available on site across the two days. There will be a BBQ on site, as well as healthy and vegetarian options served from the main clubhouse building.

There’ll also be tuck shops, ice cream and Green Farm Coffee.
