We run an annual football tournament at Egerton usually across 3 or 4 weekends in May / June. Our tournaments are for everyone! We welcome entries from boys and girls teams – girls teams have their own groups from U9s upwards.
April 2021 – No tournaments are planned for this year at the present time. Due to an extended season (resulting from covid-19 lockdown delays) until July, and the requirement for pitch renovations in August before the new season begins, there is little time left to fit in our usual summer tournament.
We would love to be able to run a tournament again soon – any updated plans will be published here and on our social media channels.
Thank you for your interest.

We aim to send fixture details out to managers at least a weeks before the tournament weekend that your group will be playing in. However with last minute additions and changes to team listings, this isn’t always possible. Please check this page for notice of when to expect fixture details.
This is an end of season tournament so team’s should enter as per the current season’s age groups (2019/2020).
To ensure the best possible experience for all teams, we will establish groups based on ability. Upon registration for the tournament, you will have selected your team’s level of experience (beginner / intermediate / advanced) and we will build the groups within these categories.
Squad sizes are as stated in the tournament rules for your age group. There will be no exceptions to the maximum squad size.
