The Stevenage Supporters Association FC (SSAFC) is delighted to announce that the 5th annual Mitchell Cole Memorial Tournament will take place on Saturday 13th May at the Armadillo Stadium, home of Arlesey Town FC.


Money will be raised for Cardiomyopathy UK, a charity which Mitchell worked closely with and helps those who suffer from Cardiomyopathy.


The day begins at 10am and will consist of a Six Team Tournament which involves the SSAFC along with supporter’s teams from Barnet, Cambridge, London Carlisle, AFC Wimbledon and a Cole XI.  Mitchell's Brother, Ben will manage the Cole XI and will be made up of friends and family.


The games will last 21 minutes (Mitchell's shirt number at Stevenage) and the winners of the tournament will take home the Mitchell Cole Tournament Trophy, currently being held by Barnet.


Arlesey Town have kindly agreed to open the bar on the day so refreshments and food will be available to purchase.


There will also be various fundraising activities going on including the annual raffle which will have plenty of prizes up for grabs.


Tickets are on sale now for £1 a strip and can be bought from tournament organiser, Keith Bell.


He is also on the look-out for helpers so please get in touch should you either wish to buy tickets or put yourself forward as a volunteer.


You can email him at or get in touch via Twitter.


Last year's tournament saw a fantastic £2,000 raised which the SSAFC are hoping will be beaten this year with your support.
