Sutton Juniors Festival of Football Update!!!
Due to issues with the original venue provider, South Craven School, on cost we have reluctantly had to relocate the tournament to Skipton Sandylands/Skipton RUFC fields (same venue as previous Skipton Juniors tournaments for those that are familiar - next to Skipton Cricket Club).
The venue will be as good, if not better, than the original location in terms of layout albeit out of the immediate vicinity, however, we have received the full support of the main event sponsor, Sutton Village Committee in having to take the decision to relocate the Festival of Football.
The Festival of Football have received 164 entries!!!
16 @ U7, 24 @ U7, 24 @ U8, 24 @ U9, 24 @ U10, 18 @ U11, 16 @ U12 and 18 @ U13.
The same event in 2012 received 120 entries!
The hard work of receiving the team entries is now replaced with the request for volunteers, referees, bun making, raffle prizes and sponsorship and a series of postings will follow noting our requirements for assistance on these matters.
The Sutton Juniors Festival of Football, kindly supported by the Sutton Village Committee, will take place on 21st and 22nd May 2016 at South Craven School.
The 2 day event will cover age groups from under 6 through to under 13 and is hoped to attract in excess of 100 teams from around the Yorkshire and Lancashire regions.
Details have now been emailed out to all team managers this morning regarding the event and further postings will be added over the coming weeks especially in respect of volunteers, sponsorship, etc.
Any team managers, coaches or admin support that have not received the email please get in touch with myself direct and I will forward the details on.
Thanks Sutton Village Committee!!!
On behalf of Sutton Juniors Football club I'd like to say a massive thank you to our friends at Sutton Village Committee!
The help, guidance and support offered over the past 5 years and even more so over the past 6 months has been invaluable!
Not only are they our largest Legacy supporter but they also now sponsor 2 of our younger teams and are the first people to contact us should we put a call out for help of any kind.
The Village committee is a voluntary group who work tirelessly to put on some amazing events throughout the year such as the FunDay, Bonfire and Christmas Lights and their hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed and is appreciated not only by our members but also by the community in general!!!
Next event on the horizon is Sutton FunDay hopefully all our juniors will once again join us on the parade and support the event and the village committee as they support us!!!
Date for your diaries Sutton FunDay Sunday 19th June.
Sutton Juniors are on the lookout for an enthusiastic person to coach/manage and guide our next crop of juniors through the club, if you have a child in reception year at school and are interested in joining our elite band of volunteers please do get in touch.
