Bassingbourn Youth Football Club have finished the summer holidays with two fantastic festivals for their U8 team.

Both events were being used to raise funds for the club and to get the players ready for the new season. 

But they proved hugely popular with teams coming from Stevenage, Biggleswade, Melbourn and Comberton, more than 40 players and their families and friends adding to the jubilant mood.

Bassingbourn also used the festivals to take possession of their new kit, new sponsor Jon Foster, managing director of Littlington-based Absolute Audio Visual Solutions doing the honours.

The club run mixed and boys' teams throughout the season, with age groups from U7 up to U18.

There is also a Saturday Soccer Development club for juniors aged between four and six.
