Junior Chasetown FC footballers are in Lichfield’s twin town to take part in an international competition.
The Under 14 Chasetown Scholars and Chasetown Colts sides will compete in the Biennial Interland Football Tournament held at Sainte Foy Les Lyon in France this weekend.
They will take on ten French sides tomorrow (May 14) and have been fundraising for two years to pay for the trip.
A spokesperson said: “For some of the players this will be thier first ever trip outside of the UK.
“The Chasetown youth section has been attending this tournament since 1999 & Sainte Foy Les Lyon has sent a team to attend Chasetown’s Biennial Easter Tournament since 2001.
“Sainte Foy Les Lyon is twinned with the city of Lichfield and links like this will hopefully help to strengthen the relationship across another generation.”
