On Saturday 19th August, Lydford Foxes will host its own mini-tournament, with Okehampton Argyle and YMCA Hawks taking part. We’re calling it the Foxes Cup and we hope to make it an annual event.
Fixtures and structure to be confirmed, but the first match should kick-off at 10am, so we’ll be asking parents and players to arrive from 9am/9.30am. We hope to finish by around 2pm.
Refreshments will be available, including a barbecue, if the weather improves…
We know that some players are unavailable, so some names aren’t included on the squad list. However, the following (available) players are eligible to take part:
Charlie, William, Cameron, Ben M, Oliver J, Stanlee, Dylan, Paul S, Ollie B, Otis M, Corey, Harvey W, James F, Ernie B, Finlay L, Jack L, Louis, Shea, Jonty, Max, Ashley.
That’s a squad of 21 players, so in theory we should be able to create two teams of nine for the tournament. With this in mind, please let us know if you cannot make it on the 19th.
We won’t be charging an entry fee, but will be hoping to recoup some costs by charging for refreshments on the day. A trophy will be awarded to the winning team.
This will be a good preparation for the new season, which is now just three weeks away.
In other news, we’re now affiliated with the Devon FA, which is great news for the club. We’ll be arranging a parents and players meeting before the end of the month, as we seek to answer any questions or concerns ahead of our first competitive fixture.
