D1060 Under 12s 5 – a – Side Football Tournament

By Webmaster - Posted on 20 August 2013

Following the success of an inaugural 5-a-side football tournament held in August, organised by District 1220 (Derbyshire) and held at the FA Centre of Excellence, St Georges Park, Burton upon Trent, it is hoped that this will develop into an annual ‘RIBI u12 Youth Football Competition’, with teams entering and representing each individual rotary district.

In order to select a team to represent D1060 at such an event, we will be seeking teams to enter into a D1060 qualifying tournament to be held possibly in March/April 2014.

However FIRST, we are asking for help from Clubs and Members who would be able to assist in organising such a Tournament, probably involving an Area qualifying event, prior to the District ‘Final’?

Current we are still in the initial stages, and by way of this notice, conducting a feasibility study, as we need help from clubs and members to hopefully move this forward. NOTHING will happen unless we get help!

Is your Club or Members:

Involved with Football possibly at Youth level, and could help as part of the D1060 organising group?

Are prepared to get involved and set-up our D1060 u12 Football Competition?

Able to identify a suitable a venue(s) to hold a ‘5-a-side’ event?

Perhaps have contact with local Youth football clubs who may wish to get involved, help, supported and/or sponsored by your rotary club?


In the first instance please contact myself (nb: holiday 6 – 22 Sept. inc.), giving brief details of how you wish to get involved.  Your prompt attention would be appreciated.

Please do NOT send any expressions of possible football team interest, we need a D1060 Organising team first!

Thank you for your kind attention to this matter.
