Posh day out for Kixx family and friends

South Holland footballers have had the chance to play at a Football League club ground, thanks to their children’s sporting prowess.

Friends and family members of the Peterborough and South Kesteven regions of the Kixx football academies went head to head at the Weston Homes Stadium home of League One play-off semi-finalists Peterborough United.
Kixx offers a high-energy, fun, creative and age-appropriate introduction to physical activity through football. Training sessions are provided for boys and girls aged 18 months to ten years.
The day was in aid of the Peterborough City Hospital NICU charity, which offers services to save the lives of young children, especially those that are born prematurely.
Kixx’s Posh invasion came on a gorgeous day and started with a tunnel walk-out with all the players and their children.
A cagey first half saw plenty of opportunities squandered by both sides. Kixx Peterborough took the lead after about 15 minutes and that proved to be the only goal of the half.
The Peterborough team showed their qualities after the break, going on to win 6-1, with former Norwich City, Bury and Posh professional Bobby Copping among those on the scoresheet.
The result was not the focus of the game, however, as it was still all smiles at the final whistle.
Peterborough United were thanked for the use of their ground and Kixx officials are hoping to repeat the event in the future.
