Saturday afternoon will see the girls come into their own with U9, U10, U12 and U14 all taking to the pitches.

We will also be having a very special senior match taking place with our memorial match for our former coach John Fairweather taking place between the current Wetherby Athletic team and a Wetherby Athletic Legends team. This kicks-off at 1:30pm and will be on the main pitch. Proceeds raised form this game will go to the British Heart Foundation, as chosen by Mr Fairweather’s family.


Sunday morning will see the Boys U10 and U14 competitions take place, registration for both starts at 9am.

Sunday afternoon sees the Boys U11, U13 and U15’s take to the pitches.

Please be aware that it will be busy, so allow plenty of time for parking at The Ings, however please note that there is NO PARKING in the Wetherby Leisure Centre car park and alternative parking arrangements will be made known if the Grass Car Park is closed due to weather conditions. There is also a £2 parking charge, payable to the car-park attendants on arrival.

Wetherby Athletic and Wetherby Athletic Juniors would like to thank all of our kind sponsors who have donated to this event, without them, we couldn’t provide these kind of events so thank you from us all.

We would also like to say a big thank you to all the volunteers who have very kindly given their time up to help over the weekends. Again, without them, we couldn’t do this so please respect all the volunteers and marshals over the two days.

To all the players, parents and coaches, have a great weekend
