Don Masson Challenge Cup A Big Hit

12 May 2014

Notts County Football Club welcomed the best junior teams from the surrounding areas for the Don Masson Challenge Cup.

10 teams at Under-8s, Under-9s and Under-10s competed in a group stage and knockout tournament at the club’s Highfields Training Facility. 

The competition, which was refereed by the club’s youth team players, proved to be highly competitive and a good advert for grass roots football in Nottinghamshire.

Event organiser and lead development phase coach Dan Leivers said: “Thanks to all the teams that took part - the standard was brilliant.

“The players did their club’s proud on the whole and it was an enjoyable and entertaining day for everyone involved.

“We saw some great young talent on show and, with the permission of their clubs, we may even see some of them in the Academy in years to come.

“Congratulations to the winners and we look forward to welcoming the teams back for next season’s tournament.”

Under-8s - Arsenal Soccer Schools
Under-9s - Dunkirk

The Don Masson Tournament was started in 2010 and is hosted every summer by the Notts County Academy. 

All money raised by the even will be invested in the club's Academy.

The event was supported by On Call Recruitment. For more information, visit
