The programme is in place to offer new U7/8 girls teams a chance to play in a fun and friendly fixture programme.  Each festival is friendly and no results are taken.  It’s an opportunity for brand-new teams to get their first experience of football, and what better way than in a summer festival?

Teams are encouraged to complete the team sheet below, tick which festival they wish to attend and submit to us as soon as possible to secure a place on one of these fantastic events. 


Please note: those clubs wishing to attend any festivals from 1 July 2018 onwards must have re-affiliated for the 2018-19 season before they can play any games.  

Jess Nelson, Football Development Officer, said: “We are really pleased with the amount of clubs that have come forward to support hosting these festivals. It gives new players and teams a great opportunity to come together, meet other teams, play some games and learn the basic rules of the game in a fun and friendly atmosphere.”
