A Festival of Football

During the weekend of 21 and 22 May, we were thrilled to welcome over 170 teams from 65 clubs to our spring tournament. The sun shone, the coffee flowed, and the ice cream melted, as we enjoyed a true festival of football at the Arena.

Across the weekend we witnessed frenzied battles as teams sprinted, passed, and scored in their 10-minute, high stake matches. Boys and girls from U6 through to U16 were brought together in the spirit of positive competition. Our partners at SkillZone Soccer expertly refereed the matches and kept them all running smoothly.

We welcomed our new Walton & Hersham Youth FC U6 teams to the tournament and we marvelled at their energy and enthusiasm, spurred on by their encouraging managers.

We are grateful to all the teams who joined us, and we hope to see you again next year!

Our friends at Surrey Coffee Company kept the bacon sarnies, burgers and coffee in plentiful supply as we picnicked in between games.

The tournament app, Tournify, was a revelation; we all knew exactly where we needed to be and when. The organisation was second to none.

The camera of DEphoto snapped happily, capturing all the minute-by-minute action on Saturday.

David Charles was selling the highly prized tournament T-shirts - he really is the GOAT!

The pick and mix was certainly a huge hit with the kids, giving them all the energy, they needed to power through their games.

The parking was slick, the branding top notch, the scheduling on point, the tunes were on fire, the bouncy castle was bouncing, and the drinks were chilled! There truly was a festival atmosphere at the Arena.

Congratulations to the raffle winner, John Moore, the proud owner of a new Nintendo Switch.

Thank you to all the parents, grandparents, family, and friends who helped make the tournament atmosphere so positive.

We thank you for appreciating the value a community football club can bring to the young people and families in the area.

We are immensely grateful to the Tournament Committee for their tireless commitment to our Club and also to our wonderful volunteers who stepped up and answered the call of the Doodle poll when asked!

We never take for granted the support of our members. From a few kids on a Saturday morning to a Club with over 400 members, we have come a long way thanks to you.

Enjoy your summer and we will see you soon for the 2022/23 season.
