Last year's Mick George Cup raised £4,500 for the Chris Turner Statue Fund.

Following the success of last year’s inaugural Mick George Cup, the official Posh kit sponsors are again running the six-a-side football tournament at the Posh ground, providing the local business community and club supporters with the opportunity to gain bragging rights.

Last year, £4,500 was raised from the event, all of which was donated to the Chris Turner Statue Fund.

Companies and supporters across the city are invited to enter with the cost of entry set at £280 per team. Squads of up to seven players are permitted and if you wish to gain an extra advantage, you can even ‘buy’ a former Posh legend to be part of your team!

Local business Wilderspin Garage triumphed in last year’s event.

Jon Stump, finance director at Mick George Ltd, commented: “Last year’s event was a brilliant occasion. It is a rare opportunity for most to get out and play under the lights of a professional football stadium. You could tell that some were caught up in the excitement, and perhaps didn’t fulfil their full potential, so to speak.

“As official club sponsors, it’s a pleasure to provide this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for anyone who wishes to be involved. This event certainly does that, while raising valuable funds for charity.”
