The Worplesdon Phoenix FC Select X1 have invited the Hurricanes to the Memorial Ground giving everyone a chance  to see local football at it’s best.  Will youth succumb to experience?  Can Phoenix rise to the occasion?  Will the mighty Hurricanes lose for the first time this season?  Sunday 3rd January will provide the answers and more….’.
