This is an annual event and aimed at this season’s Under 10s going on to U11s next season, where they move to 9-a-side and the offside rule kicks in for the first time. We offer this FREE to our sides.
The event will be Sunday 28th August which is the August Bank Holiday weekend. Because of the wide ability range of teams we try to match up teams like for like regarding ability. Our aim is to give the teams the practice they need, at the right level for them. We always receive good feedback about how good this event is for this age group.
DATE: Sunday 28th August
The teams will be placed into groups and will play at least four, (possibly five) x 20 minute games on a league basis, with adequate breaks in between matches.
In an effort to offer this experience to as many players as possible, squads will be allowed up to 15 players and unlimited roll-on, roll-off during matches.
Squads will need to be registered by 9.30am and the first games will kick off at 10am. All games (including the Finals) will be finished by 4pm.
The eventual winning squad will receive the “Eric Speake Cup”. They will hold the Cup for one year, and will be responsible for its return to be competed for the following year.
There will be individual awards given to all players in the Winning, Runners-up and 3rd Placed Squads.
Cost of entry will be £50 per squad (maximum 15 players)
Please complete an application form and return to Sale United FC with payment and should be submitted before 22nd August 2016.
