Verwood Town Annual 6-a-side Youth Tournament
Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control the planned Tournament for 17th and 18th June 2023 has now been cancelled.
Each June Verwood Town Youth hold an annual 6-a-side tournament formerly known as the "Rossgarth Tournament".
The tournament is well known to be one of the best tournaments in the area.
Each year we have teams enter from several counties and are now pleased to offer a separate girls only section.
This year it will take place over the weekend Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th June 2023
Registrations are now open for this years tournament.
Spaces in the tournament sell out extremely fast so we recommend you reserve your space as soon as possible.
This year you will be able to register and pay for your space online by clicking the relevant link below.
Payment can be made via PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account to pay as you can check out as a guest. Any problems with payment please contact us.
The tournament allows Verwood Town YFC to raise vital funds for the club,
and as a volunteer run organisation these funds allow the club to continue to grow,
purchase equipment and develop and train our coaches further.
This ensures that our players are given the best football experience we can offer and allows us to keep our
registration fees to a minimum.

All other age groups will be a competitive format where the Winners and Runners Up will win an award.
Unfortunately, due to FA rules, no child aged 5 can take part in the football festival, hence age 6's is aimed at players aged 6 at the time of the tournament.
