A FOOTBALL tournament has proved so popular it may become an annual event in the Skelton and Brotton area.

After a week of tough matches, the finalists meet at a Golden Jubilee carnival on Saturday.

More than 180 young people and 22 teams have been taking part in the seven-a-side competition, staged as part of jubilee celebrations in the area.

Saturday's carnival starts at 1pm on the playing field at Badger Hill School in Brotton.

The Community Forum received a £3,000 grant to stage the party, which will include a bouncy castle, dog show, sideshows, bungee jumping, wrestling, music and a parade.

Last week, young footballers battled it out at St Peter's School playing field, and in the finals Errington Primary meets Highcliffe in the under-11s, while Brotton Juniors face with Freebrough in the 12 to 14 age group.
