Thousands attend Windsor FC youth football tournament

More than 200 teams took part in the Windsor Football Club youth tournament over the weekend.


Teams from all over the country and two from Belgium took part in the games at the club in Hanover Way.

Organiser and under 12s coach Marvin Rixson said: “It’s been great. The kids have all enjoyed themselves and we’ve had really positive feedback from the visiting teams.

“We had 206 teams playing and around 1,000 spectators each day.

“All the coaches and organisers here are volunteers so it’s a big credit to them that it’s gone so well.”

Two competitions were run for the teams; the cup and plate competition.

Under 8s, 10s, 12s, 14s and 16s played on the Saturday and all other ages up to 17 played on the Sunday.

The tournament, run by the Windsor youth football club, is held annually.
