“I would like to congratulate Tommy on putting together what is a very prestigious and also very impressive line-up of clubs,” said Boro chairman Lee Thorn. “He managed to organise two consecutive tournaments during his tenure over at Corby Town and he has delivered something very special for us this summer, which we are already looking forward to.

Tickets for the whole weekend of top-quality action will be priced at:
ADULTS – £40
SEASON TICKET HOLDERS -£35
CONCESSIONS – £30

“I am delighted that the chairman has backed my plans for the football club,” added Wright. “Putting this event on is a clear message that he wants to re-build the football club to the level you want it to be.
“I would like to thank the managers and coaches of all the clubs that are participating. This will be a festival of football and something I really hope the whole town get behind.
“It’s going to provide excellent preparation for the new season.”
The tournament will form part of a mouth-watering pre-season for Boro with a number of friendly fixtures agreed.
