Keith Alexander Memorial Tournament
Three age groups from the Tigers’ Academy will be represented in the seventh annual Keith Alexander Memorial Tournament this weekend.
Our Under-12s, Under-14s and Under-16s will each have two teams involved in the tournament, which is a 7-a-side competition.
Hosted by Lincoln City's Youth Academy at Rustons Sports & Social Club, Newark Road, Lincoln, LN6 8RN; this prestigious event will feature around 70 teams from academies such as Hull City, Leicester City, Sheffield United, Peterborough United, Chesterfield and Scunthorpe United, with teams from Under-11s through to Under-16s taking part.
Admission is free and supporters are welcome to come along to see some potential stars of the future with the football beginning at 10am on both days. Saturday will feature Under-11s, Under-13s and Under-15s, while the Under-12s, Under-14s and Under-16s competitions take place on Sunday.
Speaking ahead of the start of the tournament, Lincoln City’s Academy Manager Damian Froggatt said: “We're looking forward to another fantastic tournament of youth football and we're delighted that so many top class Football League clubs continue to support this event.
“Our thanks goes to event sponsor Dixon Street Carpet Centre with their valuable support which helps the academy in providing further resources for the development of our players.”
