BBC Football’s Garth Crooks creates a special ‘Team of the Week’ for Strawberries & Creem Festival 2016

Garth Crooks is without doubt a British football legend. Having played for teams such as Tottenham Hotspur, Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion before becoming one of the BBC’s most honest football pundits, Crooks is certainly someone who knows a thing or two about the beautiful game. With the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament just over a week away, Strawberries & Creem Festival have teamed up with Crooks to pick a very special 5-a-side team from the artists on their line up. Crooks selects an all star team featuring some very recognisable faces, altough we’re not sure his striker would get many goals with a lack of ‘soccer’ experience.

Strawberries & Creem Festival takes place in Cambridge on June 11th, which is the same day that England take on Russia in their opening match of the Euro 2016 tournament. That match will be shown on a big screen – so for all those football fans who don’t want to miss England’s first game of Euro 2016, they’ve got you covered.

US rapper Nelly is headlining this years festival and the likes of Kano, Kurupt FM, Star One and D Double E will also be appearing across the day. You can view the full Strawberries & Creem line-up and get tickets for just £40 here.
