20th Annual Tournament & Festival of Football – 2019

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 13th July and 14th of July 2019.

The weekend will be a celebration of football for both boys and girls teams and also a great family day out.

Following on from the great success of our last few 9v9 Tournaments, we are proud to be able to offer a competition for those age groups playing 11v11 every week and for the teams moving up to 11v11 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.  Every age group will now play the formats as specified by The FA.  We are one of only a handful of clubs to be running this format of Tournament so book early to guarantee your place. 

The U7 boys age group is aimed at introducing next season’s 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 2019. Proof of age will be required to satisfy FA regulations.

Please note, this is a Pre-Season Tournament, to which Season 2019/2020 age groups will apply.
