This year sees Esker Celtic create a large 5-a-side football tournament for any boys or girls who wants to play running in May & June!
The format is simple, teams will be divided into age categories (Under 8’s, Under 9’s etc..) There will be five players allowed per team and at least one parent has to register the team.
Each player has to pay €5 to register on their team sheet.
This must all be done before the tournament starts. There are only EIGHT teams available for each age group! So it is strictly a first come first served basis and is open to anybody in the local area, not just Esker Celtic players!
Registration of teams opens on Saturday May 17th in the Clubhouse at 9am and only teams can register, not single players.
The tournament starts on May 27th and will run up to June 12th with all the finals being played on Saturday June 14th in Hermitage Park.
The Under 8’s & Under 9’s will play on three Tuesdays (May 27th, June 3rd & June 10th) from 6.00-8.30pm
The Under 10’s & Under 11’s will play on three Wednesdays (May 28th, June 4th & June 11th) from 6.00-8.30pm
The Under 12’s & Under 13’s will play on three Thursdays (May 29th, June 5th & June 12th) from 6.00-8.30pm
A parent or designated adult that registers the team must be present on each of the nights that their team is playing. They are responsible for the supervision of the players on that team. If that adult is not there, the team cannot take part.
Leagues and fixtures will be posted on the nights and will be constantly updated online.
If a player is sick or cannot make it, they may nominate a player of the same age to take their place at no extra cost.
Players must wear football boots, shorts, socks and shin-guards each night. They will not be allowed to play if they do not have these items. They should also bring a drink.
We would encourage any parents to come and support their child and others in the tournament.
Full details will be forwarded to all teams when they register.
Trophies and medals will be given to winners and runners up in each age group
