BT Sport Cup
On Monday 20 May, an elite squad of men representing Kibworth Town FC and the Coach & Horses were despatched to Leicester City’s King Power stadium to do battle in the BT Sport Cup. This nationwide grassroots football competition involves 11 regional heats at famous grounds around the country, followed by a semi-final day at the Manchester City academy campus and then the grand final at St James’ Park Newcastle.
Kibworth’s squad comprised an equal number of players from the first team, reserves, and veterans. This was a rare opportunity to use the same changing facilities as Kasper, Wes, Jamie, and co. before stepping out onto the hallowed turf for a series of 7-a-side games.
Unfortunately, on the day our results weren’t quite enough to take us through to the semi-finals in Manchester, but it was a day that won’t be forgotten in a hurry - we’ll definitely be back for another crack next year.
