A FREE football festival for teenagers is being held this weekend.

On Saturday, the Wiltshire Football Association and Swindon Town FC Community Foundation will host the event to celebrate the opening of Foundation Park, an all-weather facility next to the County Ground.

All 11-14 year olds, regardless of ability, are invited to take part between 12.30-2.30pm.

Jon Holloway, who heads up Swindon Town's community department, said: “We are extremely proud of our new facility and very much looking forward to hosting this free football festival.

“Our vision has always been to create a community hub which offers opportunities for everyone to come and get involved in our projects and programmes.”

Each participant will get a free child and adult ticket for Town's friendly match against Coventry City at 3pm the same day. Spaces are limited so booking is essential. Visit http://​bit​.ly/​S​w​i​n​d​o​n​F​o​o​t​b​a​l​l​F​e​s​tival
