This Festival, in memory of Reamonn Gormley and hosted by Blantyre BC, will consist of over 1200 players from the 2007 to the 1996 age groups. There are numerous clubs represented from all areas of Scotland. The festival will take the format of:

2007- Fun 4s
2006 – Fun 4s
2005 – Match 4s
2004 – Soccer 7s
2003 – Soccer 7s
2002 – Soccer 7s
2001 -- 11 aside
2000 – 11 aside
1999 – 11 aside
1996 – 11 aside

The aims of the day are as follows
• Kids to have fun.
• Promote healthy living in children and provide awareness of Fire Safety and anti-social behaviour.
• Establish links and contacts with one another.
• Raising monies for Charity

There will be 16 Fun 4s pitches, and 6 each for 7-a-side and 11-a-side, and the 2007’s will kick off the action on Saturday, with all presentations being completed by 5pm.

The older age groups start on Sunday; the 1999’s will play 25 minute games in a round robin format and the 200’s and 2001’s will follow suit.

A 1996’s team face a team of legends before the closing ceremony of a tournament which should be a fantastic occasion for all involved.
