Welwyn Hatfield schools on the ball for the World Cup
WORLD Cup fever is coming this summer – but for youngsters in Welwyn Hatfield, it will be here sooner than that.
For 16 schools are taking part in a themed football tournament.
The event – being backed by the Welwyn Hatfield Times – takes place on Saturday, May 8 at the Herts Sports Village.
And our editor Terry Mitchinson and Wycombe Wanderers goalkeeper Steven Arnold, who’s from Welham Green, were on hand at the university venue on Wednesday to conduct the all-important draw.
The 16 schools have each been allocated a country to represent – covering some of the nations competing in South Africa.
