A WORLD Cup-themed tournament for young footballers has been cancelled.

The football fiesta, which was due to be held in Laverstock on July 6, has been cancelled due to a lack of entries.

Organiser Barry Webb said: “The small number of entries would make it difficult to mount a contest across the age groups. I am personally disappointed not least because of all the work that has been put in by the team from Rotary and the Chamber of Commerce, from the schools and I am most disappointed for the charities that would have benefitted.”
