Nottingham was the destination for a memorable 8v8 tournament with another Pro:Direct Cup the prize for the victors. Hosted by Pro:Direct Academy Nottingham and joined by teams from London, Birmingham at Eastwood CFC, there was a surprise in store as the invitation to the touring side KVT Academy from Trondheim in Norway presented a chance to test the teams against quality opposition.

With scouts from Nottingham Forest, Sheffield United and Leeds United on hand to run the rule over the talent on display, the players were given a chance to shine in the bright conditions on a crisp and sparkling 3G pitch.

The conditions were arguably perfect for the flowing football - a crisp autumnal edge to the weather meant the focus could be purely on the game. The vibe was kept fresh with quality tunes echoing around the ground, keeping any down time upbeat and pumped. The Pro:Direct Trial Van also made an appearance to give the Nottingham players a chance to try out the newest of Nike football boots, the Phantom VSN.

With no shortage of goals, plenty of determination and a bit of edge thrown in, the Pro:Direct Cup witnessed fast paced action and technical skill. After a hard fought tournament the winners in the boys section were the locals, Nottingham, whilst KVT took the spoils for the girls competition.
