Horsley Annual 6-A-Side Tournament
Last weekend saw the 21st annual Horsley Football Club 6 aside tournament take place at the club and what an incredibly enjoyable and successful weekend it was! The weather was kind to us with glorious sunshine, if a little windy occasionally. 81 teams and close to 800 players took part in age groups ranging from under 6s to under 12s.
More than 2000 people attended the event over the two days and all of them contributed to the overall success of the tournament. Every team took part in the best ethos of the game giving all they could in an atmosphere of fair play and enjoyment.
For the record, here are the winners of the U9 – U12 competitions:-
|U9||Horsley United||Christchurch United Red|
|U10||Esher Wizards||Esher Colts|
|U11||Epsom United Youth||Holmbury & Westcott Wolves A|
|U12||Warren Mead Black||Horsley Lions|
As always there are plenty of people to thank, from the organising committee to our own Horsley FC parents for volunteering to do all the jobs, without you we couldn’t run the event which is so important to the continued success of the club.
Most of all though we’d like to say thanks to all of the players, coaches, parents and supporters from all the teams that attended and supported the event so fantastically and took part in the tournament in such a sporting manner.
Many thanks also to Gascoigne-Pees in East Horsley for sponsoring this year’s event.
We hope to see all of you again at next year’s tournament.
I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who arranged the tournament on Saturday, it looks like a lot of hard work went into organising and it was a great success. It was our first tournament and we really enjoyed it.

Just wanted to drop you an email to say a big thank you on behalf of West Byfleet Scorpions U11s (kids, parents & coaches) for arranging the tournament yesterday & your help in processing our late entry. The kids (& the parents & coaches) thoroughly enjoyed the tournament & we all appreciated the hospitality we were shown. In fact, the kids enjoyed it so much, they are now insisting that I enter them into more tournaments over the next few weeks!
