11th and 12th June 2011

The second Crusaders summer tournament has been hailed as an unbridled success with 35 teams attending over the two day festival at Wetheral.  Teams came from across the Carlisle and local area, as well as from Lochar Thistle, Dumfries, Scotland. The tournament saw the Under 9's play on Saturday and Under 7's, 8's and 10's playing on Sunday.  The weather did not dampen team spirits and all were delighted to receive their medals from the newly appointed 425th Mayor of Carlisle, Barry Earp, who was instrumental in the purchase of the Wetheral Playing Fields 20 + years ago and was pleased to see the field used to its full potential.

The Crusaders played brilliantly across all the age groups and took home three out of four trophies, an improvement on the last tournament, where we won 1 out of 2.  The standard of football was high and this was helped by the use of professional referees, one of which had travelled from Stoke to referee his first tournament.

The football was complemented by the inflatable Titanic slide from KLM Bouncy Castles, Abbeytown, Catering from Blue Rare, Ice Cream Van, Bucking Bronco, Event-Photos (Photos from the tournament can be viewed/ordered via this site) and Cage Football/Fire Tender provided by the Fire & Rescue Service. The itinerary was printed by Prontoprint, Carlisle, the recycling bins were kindly provided by Carlisle City Council (some still struggled to differentiate between plastic, tin and general waste) and the shuttle bus to and from the car park was provided by Metcalfe's.  The car park or field was much appreciated although some still insisted on abandoning their cars anywhere.  There are many more who helped but they are too numerous to mention here; you know who you are and will be feeling a little tired today.

Thank you to everyone who made the Festival happen and especially to all the teams that braved the weather and had fun.

We would love to hear your feedback on the Festival, good or bad and look forward to hearing from you via our feedback form on the Contact Us page of this site above.
