    You could hire a bouncy boxing castle or sumo suits- that always goes down well with older boys! For a couple of private functions I've organised in my previous job, I've had a similar age group to cater for and they tend to like things that they think are "grown up" rather than babyish. A fire eater or juggler would go down well too- or you could hire a human fly wall, the ones where you wear a velcro suit and launch yourself at a velcro wall off a trampoline!!!!!!

    Food- yummy grilled chicken & pineapple kebabs (on safe skewers!!) homemade burgers, potato wedges, corn on the cob, a football-themed cake,

    Drinks- Alcohol free cocktails will do the trick!!!

    Food - hot dogs, pizza, corn on the cob, popcorn, doughnuts.

    Things to hire - illusionist, hypnotist.

    Games - pin the whistle on the ref!

    hi

    i used to have to deal with this a lot

    bear in mind it might take a day or 2 to arrange but its worth it

    where are you based?

    you can EASILY and i mean EASILY arrange to have a fringe/reserve player from a local premierleague/championship team come and give a talk

    this 30-60 min talk will be free and will inspire the team loads more than a childrens entertainer - you may think kids will not be interested if the player isnt well know - but this isnt the case = they will hang on everyword that the person says
    have a Q+A session with the kids asking questions - it will mean a lot for them - as after the 1st 10 min they will realise that 10-15 years ago that player was like them - and they WIll inspire the kids

    it may seem like a daunting thing - but phone a local club and ask for there football in the community spokesperson

    bear in mind that the season has ended so this should be a doddle

    if they refuse a player - ask for a raffle prize - as clubs tend to think if they cant help your direct goal - anything is better than nothing - and a raffle prize means other things can be paid for

    also do this with as many teams as you can - a raffle prize is better than nothing - if you ask for a signed ball they might ask you to provide the ball - just go to local jjb etc and get the 2 for a 5er balls - you will get this back in raffle money


    Also - this would take more planning = but it is doable
    phone club and ask them if you can have a stadium tour = most teams will let you if you give enough notice - and charge very little per head - which would be cheaper than a entertainer - but also ask the team if you can present your awards - either on the pitch or in the directors box - they should let you


    PM me and i will give you my email address and get you a few contacts

    wigan
    everton
    liverpool
    man utd or man city may be able to help

    im sure with a bit of planning you can turn something out

    one tip - make phone calls - dont send emails - emails tend to be ignored by clubs - as they get a lot of angry fans mailing in

    i have pmed you my msn email address so if you fancy a chat -assuming you use msn - it will make things easier

    Invite a stripper.

    Get in touch with your local Referee's association.

    Ask in particular if any retired Refs' would like to come along and have a chat with the lads; honestly, some of the stories the refs come out with are really, really funny.

    Some Refs come along with a short 'fun' quiz on the rules - kids are always amazed at the answers.

    Worth a thought. hope the event goes well.

    Yeah invite a ref thats better then having to pay for a pinata.

    No seriously though surely no teenager wants to listen to a ref, it would be like inviting a geography teacher to come along
