18th Annual Tournament & Festival of Football – 2017

Wickersley Youth Junior Football Club is pleased to invite your club to take part in our annual Junior Football Tournament and Festival of Football to be held over the weekend 1st and 2nd of July 2017.

The weekend will be a celebration of football for both boys and girls teams and also a great family day out. Hot and cold food and refreshments will be available throughout both days, along with alternative entertainment including Bouncy Castles, Games and Stalls.

Following on from the great success of our last two 9v9 Tournaments, we are proud to be able to offer a competition for those age groups playing 9v9 every week and for the teams moving up to 9v9 next season.  This will be a great opportunity to introduce your players to the new format of football and to try out your formation options.  We are one of only a handful of clubs to be running this format of Tournament so book early to guarantee your place.

For the younger age groups, we have stuck to the formats appropriate to the ages as specified by The FA.

The U7 boys age group is aimed at introducing next seasons U7 teams to organised/structured football to give them a head start when next season begins! Please note, to be eligible, players must attain 6 years of age by 31st August 2017. Proof of age will be required to satisfy FA regulations.
