Well the football’s have hardly had time to go soft before they are out again to be kicked in competitive action.

The 16th June sees FTYBR FC take part in Stockfest. A 11-a-side pre-Worldnet tournament held in, well, Stockport.

The money raised from entering the tournament is to go to MS and as well as Stockport, there will be supporters teams from, Hull City, Tranmere Rovers, Chester City, Manchester United, West Bromwich Albion and Ayr United.

The whole day should start at 9 am and finish about 4pm.


Manager Steve Hartshorn admits the day will be tough,

“There are quite a few good teams there and no doubt all the other teams have been training. Not us though. This will be our training so we won’t be taking it all too seriously, we’ll be going to enjoy the day and again, fly the flag for Mansfield Town, which is what it is all about.

We have one or two players out due to one thing or another but as usual, we’ll give it a go.”


A departure time has yet to be sorted
