What is the #WeekofFootball?
Devon FA have put together 14 events, in 7 days, at 1 venue, to create an inclusive weekly programme where all levels, abilities and ages get to be a part of this new and exciting event.
The reason for #WeekofFootball?

It will end on Friday 25th May in the evening with the Devon Women’s Supplementary County Cup Final between Budleigh Salterton Ladies and Buckland Athletic Ladies at Coach Road – also the last County Cup Final of the season for 2018!
