Successful Fifth Junior Tournament
Whyteleafe Football Club’s football tournament was hailed as a great success this past weekend as over 80 teams aged between six and 11 and their families descended on the Church Road pitch at the weekend.
Youth Secretary and organizer Kieron Horn said “There has been some fantastic football played over the course of the weekend. Some very good individual players and well coached teams.”
There were over 80 teams that travelled to Church Road coming from all different areas of the South-East including Surrey, Kent and South London. There were ten trophies up for grabs with teams from a highly competitive field competing for the title.

General Manager Clive Davis said “On behalf of the Club, I would like to thank everyone who helped make this happen on the day. The roles were never ending: Timers, scorers, pitch runners, pitch coordinators, car park management, "Greeters", first aider, referees etc. An amazing effort to get everything to run to time, with only a two-minute turn around between matches. A big thank you to Kieron Horn for all of his hard work in the lead up to the tournament. It is impossible to mention everyone involved because it was a good team and club effort.”
Congratulations to our two Whyteleafe winning teams Whyteleafe Warriors and Whyteleafe Elite. Whyteleafe Warriors who are managed by Adam Hickson, Dave Sturgess and Russell Holt and Whyteleafe Elite who are managed by Corey Grant and JC.
Plans are already underway to make our sixth junior tournament next year a bigger and better event for both players, supporters and staff. We would like to thank all of the teams that took part in the tournament over the weekend and we wish you all the best for the 2019/2020 season and we look forward to seeing you again next year.
