Vinsky FC away Fenix Trophy: date and details announced

We are pleased to announce the details for our final Group C fixture in this season's Fenix Trophy which will take place on Wednesday 10th April 2024, with a kick off time of 4pm CEST, 3pm BST at the Complexe Sportif Firmin Riffaud in Magnanville (full address below).
We thank supporters for their patience as we’ve worked through a set of challenges with our host’s ground availability and our need for affordable flights. We are delighted to have found a solution that works for both of our requirements, as the earlier kick off time allows our team to catch the late evening flight home. The match is also during the Easter school holidays which opens up the option to junior supporters to attend.
