The future legends that came to Hoppers in ’97

Date: 15 February 2017

We are very excited to be hosting England U18s against Scotland U18s in March, but it won’t be the first time we have hosted a junior international fixture at Lightfoot Green.

Back in 1997, on Tuesday 8th April, we welcomed England and Scotland U18s to Hoppers, and it’s fair to say there were some future legends gracing the field that day.

Take a look below at some of the notable players from that match, and let’s hope we see another batch of future internationals in a few weeks time on 12th March.

Remember we are offering a great 3 course Sunday beef dinner and match entry – £10 children, £20 adults. You can book your tickets by clicking here.
