World Cup fever hots up in Darlington

Darlington and Stockton Times: WORLD CUP: World Cup fever hots up in Darlington WORLD CUP: World Cup fever hots up in Darlington

WORLD Cup fever will be heating up a North-East town as the competition gets underway.

Budding Beckhams and wannabe Walcotts can test their skill with the ball when an interactive simulator comes to the Cornmill Centre, in Darlington, on Saturday (June 14).

Players can practice their penalties while camera technology measures their distance and speed, as well as their number of shots taken and goal scored.

Two referees will also be on hand to give away World Cup goodies, including Brazil and England themed mugs and drinks bottles, England hats, glasses, beer buckets and chocolates to everyone taking part.

Susan Young, centre manager at the Cornmill, said: “There’s no greater sporting event than the World Cup, so we thought we’d show our support for England’s bid by bringing a taste of the beautiful game into Cornmill for the day.

“The World Cup simulator is something all of the family can have a go at. There will be no losers on the day with participants receiving free goodies for their efforts while stocks are available.”

The simulator will be located in the Cornmill’s upper mall, outside Café M, between 9.30am and 4.30pm on Saturday (June 14).

It would be nice to see a big screen in the town square so we could watch the match while having a pint....In a plastic beaker....surrounded by the yellow jacket brigade.
