Throughout the academic year, the Community Trust host various competitions/festivals for young people to participate in. This allows pupils to represent their school, and potentially the town of Blackpool.
Football League Kids Cup
This is a national football competition for Year 5 and 6, where all Blackpool primary schools are invited to attend. The winners of this competition go on to represent Blackpool FC Community Trust in the North Regional competition, where the winner then gets to play on the hallowed turf of Wembley prior to the League 2 playoff final!
Layton Primary School were crowned the 2017 EFL Kids Cup Winners in the local round and will now progress to the North Regional finals to represent Blackpool F.C Community Trust in Doncaster. They will compete against nine other clubs and their respective school winners. The ten teams will battle it out for the opportunity to play at Wembley. Best of luck!
KS1 Football Festival
All Blackpool primary schools are invited to bring two teams of Key Stage 1 pupils (one team of Year 1 pupils and one team of Year 2 pupils) to take part in football matches and other various football activities on the Bloomfield Road pitch.
