Junior Summer Tournament

9 months ago By Dave Morley

The club growth continues

AFC Kirk Hallam are proud to announce that plans are being made for a late summer junior tournament.

We have set a provisional date for the weekend of the 11th and 12th of August and plan to host the event at the clubs home at the Stute, which is also the home of Ilkeston Rugby club. we hope to draw on their experience of hosting many junior rugby festivals over the years and add some ideas of our own.

We hope to have three 9v9 pitches and three 7v7 pitches, which would allow us to have an under 10's 7v7 and an under 11's 9v9 tournament on the Saturday, followed by an under 9's 7v7 and an under 16's 9v9 tournament on the Sunday.

There will be a BBQ, hosted by the Stute, along with their regular fantastic hospitality in the clubhouse. The entertainments plan is to also have:
An outdoor bar
Ice cream van
Bouncy Castle
10 ball Crossbar challenge
Dizzy penalties

We are also offering the opportunity for sponsor stands to accompany tournament sponsorships.

Long Term Sponsor - Vauxhall Repair Centre Ilkeston have been invited along to showcase themselves, along with Owner Jon Wright's new business venture into Wedding car hire. This new company currently has a fantastic example of a fully restored E-type Jaguar, with a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow currently undergoing the same treatment of a full restoration. We hope to see these wonderful cars at the event as well.

Kit Supplier Eurosoccer have also been invited to join us for the event.

Opportunities to sponsor the event will be offered to all local businesses with the idea that they come along and showcase themselves as well.

Exciting times, with much more information on this event to follow, watch this space. Hopefully, there will be another update by the end of the week.
