Dishes include the Café Football burger (£9.95), Nev's Noodle Pot with chicken, egg noodles, bok choi and shitake mushrooms (£10.95), and sausage roll made from pork shoulder, black pudding and Dijon mustard, served with beans (£12.95).
The Corner Shop will serve a selection of home-made ice-creams including Vimto ripple, honeycomb and mint choc chip, while desserts will feature the half time orange, pistachio turf and a melting chocolate football.
