16 teams from across Nottinghamshire have signed up to take part in an end of season tournament being planned by Carlton Town manager Tommy Brookbanks to help give local sides a lift after lockdown.

Mr Brookbanks believes that the event can offer a financial and mental lift to lower league teams ‘who need it now more than ever’. 

His tournament plan would see a number of Notts teams form two competitive leagues and play each other during the spring.
