Feast of football with an international flavour at The Walks

July 18, 2018

The Linnets continue their pre season preparations this weekend when The Walks hosts three days of football with an international flavour as the Pineapple Sports-sponsored King’s Lynn Town Challenge Cup takes place.
Friday evening sees Scottish giants Rangers Under-23s take on their counterparts from Polish side Legia Warsaw. The game has a 7.45pm start time. 
Saturday afternoon action features the Linnets as they face Norfolk rivals Norwich City Under-23s in a Norfolk derby (3pm). 
Sunday sees the final day of the competition as the two losing teams from the first two games meet at 2pm in a third-place play-off.
Three hours later, at 5pm, both winning sides from the Friday and Saturday action will meet to determine the champions of the weekend.
Speaking ahead of the weekend, Linnets chairman Stephen Cleeve thanked Pineapple Sports Management, from Hull, for their sponsorship of the tournament. 
Cleeve said: "I'm very pleased with the sponsorship arrangement and thank the company for their support of the club.
"We have an exciting weekend of football ahead of us and it’s something a little different. I hope our own supporters will come out and embrace, along with the travelling fans of our guests over the three days. 
"Rangers and Legia Warsaw, along with Norwich City, are well known for producing young stars of the future and who knows we may be seeing a future international World Cup winner at The Walks. 
"With the possibility of Rangers manager Stephen Gerrard and his assistant Gary McAllister taking in the action, a memorable weekend of football awaits us."
King's Lynn Town boss Simon Clark should have all of his squad available for selection apart from Craig Parker (holiday).
Full ticket details appear on this website but there will be match day admission, as normal, on all three days.
