    COACHES at Skem Athletic Football Club have announced they will be hosting their 12th National Girls Tournament on June 22 and 23 of 2019.

    The event takes place once again at the JMO Sports Park Skelmersdale.

    Mike Vella, organiser at the event said: “Teams from all over the UK and Northern Ireland will be participating in a weekend of football.

    “Our event is regarded by many as one of the best Girls tournament in the UK.

    “We run our event in association with CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young). The money we raise over the weekend goes to get local children free heart screenings.”

    The event is FA sanctioned. If people are interested or would like more details they should email Mike Vella at mevell1@hotmail.com or telephone 07753329565.

    The age groups are as follows: Sat, June 22 Under 9 (five a side); Under 10 (7 a side); Under 11s,12s,13s (9 a side). On Sun, June 23 - Under 14,15,16-18 (9 a side), open age (11 a side).

    Organisers have said that accommodation can be arranged at “great rates” for people who are not from the town. They add that Liverpool is very popular and only a short journey away.

    Mike added: “Last year more than 1,200 players attended over the two days. Sky Sports also attended and broadcast live through out the day. Our social media page, Skem Athletic National Tournament, has lots of further details regarding our tournament.

    “Due to the success of our event places go very quickly, so if you are interested please don't delay in signing up.”
