Derby County Ladies Football Club

Summer Festival 2019 Registration Now Open

Derby County Ladies will hold their second annual Festival of Football this June with two days of football across one weekend and registration for the tournaments are now open.

After last summer’s successful tournaments, the club are excited to see another great weekend of football with an added age group on our opening day as the Under 9’s are joining the event.

The first day’s play will take place on Saturday 15th June at Lees Brook Community College from 10am-3pm and will see age groups from Under 9’s through to Under 12’s compete in a 6-a-side competition, right through to completion.

In a slight change to last year’s tournament, the older age groups tournament will move to Merrill Academy on Sunday 16th June for age groups Under 13’s to Under 16’s inclusive and will be a 9-a-side competition that takes place from 10am-3pm.

Academy Director Dave Cholerton believes the tournament can continue to go from strength to strength and that the club are looking to attract teams from across the Midlands region.

Cholerton said “Last year was our first attempt at a Football Festival and we felt that it was a great success and that we ought to make this an annual occurrence to give players from across the Midlands to have a bit of fun at the end of the season.

“This year, we will take what went well last year and use that again and make it bigger and better by improving what we can offer teams and we are hoping that we can inspire young girls to have fun and continue their development.

“Our 1st Team players will be on hand to come down and lend their support and hopefully inspire all players and this year we are giving out Derby County Ladies season tickets for next season too where they can come down and see our great role models in action.

We can’t wait for the summer already and we are busy behind the scenes ensuring that we make this a great weekend of football. Tournaments always bring out the best in youngsters and if the tournament is anywhere near as successful as last year, it will be fantastic for al involved.”
