BJFF Tournament 2010 – A Warm Welcome to ALL of our Guests On behalf of BJFF, the FA Charter Standard Community Club of the Year Award WINNERS for Lancashire for 2010, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all players, parents, officials, spectators and all of our other guests to our 3-day August Bank Holiday football festival. This year, we have extended our tournament to a full 3-days of football, introducing football at age groups Under 13’s – Under 15’s for the first time, as well as a pilot Under 11’s 9-A-Side competition on Monday. With over 275 teams entered across the 3 days, we will be welcoming well in excess of 3000 players to our home ground. As you can imagine, the amount of work involved in organising a Tournament of this size is huge and I would like to thank all of the managers, coaches, parents and supporters of BJFF for their contributions in the run up to the tournament, and for all of the volunteers who are helping during the course of the weekend. BJFF are extremely grateful for the level of support we have received from our Sponsors, programme advertisers and other businesses and individuals who have provided donations, or offered us excellent deals on products. I must pay special thanks to John McVey and the team at 21st Century Windows, our longstanding Club Sponsors, to James Timpson, Darren Brown and the team at Timpsons for their long and sustained support of BJFF and for providing the trophies for all of the winning teams and players, and to Mark Whitter and the team at The Red Lion Beefeater Pub / Premier Travel Inn. We have a number of side-attractions over the course of the 3 days, with a Speed Gun Challenge competition for all of the age groups (how hard can you shoot9.?), a Smash The Crockery stand, Tombola, Inflatables, Hair and Face Painting etc. I would encourage you all to play, manage and spectate in the best possible spirit, adhering to the code of conduct and tournament rules. In the competitive age groups, there will be winners and losers, and whilst our referees will no doubt make some mistakes along the way, I would urge you to respect and accept their decisions at all times, in a sportsman-like manner. Please check out the Pitch / Field Map, and the General Guidance Notes for Teams, paying particular attention to the points highlighted. Please remember that the purpose of our tournament is to ensure that all of the CHILDREN enjoy themselves. As such I would ask that you show your support and encourage ALL CHILDREN during the course of the day. Finally, let’s hope the weather will be kind to us, and we all enjoy a fantastic weekend of football. Andy Griffiths Chairman & Tournament Coordinator Bispham Junior Football Federation (BJFF)
