PRIORY Celtic JFC are to host two big events at Hall Park in Eastwood this weekend.

Around 150 teams and over 1,500 players are expected to converge on the park over Saturday and Sunday for firstly its Festival of Football, for boys and girls aged six to eight who can’t yet compete in competitive football, then on Sunday for its annual tournament with teams from all over the East Midlands and Yorkshire.

Meanwhile, at the recent Nottinghamshire FA awards, Priory’s disabled section head coach Kev Bonington was named Coach of the Year and the club also won the FA respect award for its excellent disciplinary record.
