The BC Worldwide Challenge tournament this weekend will now take place at Boots and Laces training ground.The two day under 18’s tournament was due to be played at Roots Hall on 21st and 22nd July.
However, following the recent inclement weather it has been decided that the playing surface at Roots Hall is not up to taking four games in two days.
Work on the surface at Roots Hall started two weeks later than normal this summer due to the Blues first team involvement in the play-offs.
As a result the seed has not yet bedded in sufficiently to ensure a tip top playing surface this season.
This now means the games involving Norwich City, Colchester United and Millwall will now take place at Boots and Laces with entrance now being free on both days to supporters.
Norwich City under 18’s face Millwall under 18’s at 11.30am on Saturday with Southend United under 18’s playing Colchester United under 18’s at 3pm.
A third and fourth placed play-off is due to take place on Sunday at 11.30am whilst the final will kick-off at 3pm.
