International Football Festival Sat 19th & Sun 20th May

The birth of this tournament came about through my long 39 year association with Etoile Club Anstaing Chereng Tressin Gruson. Both Steve Hall and myself planned and took a Mowbray Team over to France to play in the Etoile tournament for the first time twelve years ago. Our visit was a resounding success and on our return we both managed to persuade the committee of Mowbray to host a similar tournament. This then resulted in Mowbray hosting its very first International Football Festival some 11 years ago. Our experience of Etoile Club was and is that the hospitality offered when in France is second to none and that Mowbray is treated as 'special'. Our intention has always been that Mowbray reciprocate and to the credit of all over the 11 years we have been hosting this tournament that we have achieved it through the fantastic voluntary support of all involved and that this friendship continues for many years to come. The whole idea and ethos of this is to provide the boys and girls of Etoile and Mowbray an opportunity through exchange visits to experience an education of different cultures, an opportunity to forge friendships over a two / three year and sometimes longer period and most of all an enjoyable footballing experience.. Our Festival is geared to two age groups, Under 12 and Under 13 with one age group consisting of 5 teams playing on a round robin basis and the other with eight teams playing on a two group basis. To participate in our Festival teams are invited and this way we can ensure that the participating teams are of a similar level making competition as near as possible even and interesting. This year we are joined again with two teams from Etoile and also our new friends Monaghan United from Ireland. We as a club are always looking for volunteers over the weekend to assist with initial setting up of the Friday, car parking, running our refreshments kitchen and running the BBQ so if you feel you can help then please contact Phil Baker 07530554922 or Denise Knipe 07813976672. Over the football calendar Mowbray relies on this tournament to raise vital funds which in turn are churned back into the club for the benefit of the club so please support us. Phil Baker, Chairman.
