Silverlands ground to host Carnival Cup

THE DRAW took place at The Blazing Rag recently for the Buxton Carnival Cup.

A Buxton Select XI will take on Buxton Town FC in the first semi-final, with Cote Heath FC facing Blazing Rag FC in the second semi.

The competition will take place at The Silverlands, the home of Buxton FC, on Friday July 13 - the day before the carnival.

Admission will be free on the night, but donations towards the Wells Dressing Fund will be welcomed.

Buxton Carnival Cup organiser Paul Timmins said: “Without the help of local people, with their time and money (i.e. donations and sponsorships), the week-long wells dressing festival event would not take place, so please come along on the night with your family members.

“The social club at the ground, along with the shop, will both be open.”
