LEIGH Genesis under 11s head off to the prestigious Blackpool Football Festival this weekend.

Teams from all over the country attend the two-day tournament and after a great season manager Dean Pickup is taking his young guns for an end of season treat.

"The boys have been a real credit this season and I have organised a brilliant trip which involves a weekend of football and fun that the lads can share together,” he said.

“We have had fantastic support from Ten 4 Distribution, who are our main sponsors, so that the weekend is subsidised and affordable.

“I have also got tracksuits and polos so that the lads look smart. The team can't wait to go and give a great account of themselves and fully represent the club."

Next season the they move up to under 12s with training starting in early June.
