**Under 7’s – 12’s (excl. Under 10s & U11 Girls) standard rules will apply for the format of football being played (i.e. 5, 7, 9 a side)
*** U11 Girls and U10s will give an opportunity to play the format of football you will be playing next season. U10 Girls will remain at 7 a side.
NB; Based upon FA requirements, for the U10 section (playing U11 format), players must have attained the age of 9 years old by 31/8/19 (i.e. must not have been playing up from U9 to U10 in the 2019/20 season).
Please note: As with previous years there will be cup and shield competitions in most sections meaning more games and more teams having a chance to reach a final and win a trophy. For all age groups except U7, winners and runners up of both the Cup and Shield only receive medals.
The tournament is not open to academy teams. Kent Youth League teams are allowed to play in their 2019/20 season age groups.
The age groups will be as at 2019/20 season. Please note under FA Rule 4(a)(i) that a player who had not attained the age of 6 as of midnight on 31 August 2019 is not eligible to play in this tournament.
If you wish to enter a team(s) please complete the entry form and return, with entry fee, as soon as possible. Entry forms with the option to pay by bank transfer can also be completed at this link; Kings Hill FC Tournament 2020
Team spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and are strictly limited.
No spaces will be reserved until both entry form and payment is received. Excluding Kings Hill Football Club, there is a limit of 2 teams per club per age group. It is extremely disruptive for entered teams to subsequently drop out near the tournament date so please confirm availability with your players before entering.
The closing date for entries is 30th April 2020. The entry fee for the tournament is £40 per team. Please do not delay in returning your entry. Last year some age groups were oversubscribed by between 50% and 100%
Cheques should be made payable to Kings Hill FC and sent to the name and address details at the end of the entry form. Cheques will not be banked until we have confirmed that you have a place at the tournament. Further information regarding the football tournament including format and rules, the facilities and parking will be sent out to you by email in early May 2020.
We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing teams from your club at the tournament.
