KellsBlackwater F.C. Annual Soocer Tournament

The 11th annual Kells Blackwater F.C. soccer tournament will take place
over three weekends in August when  between 1500-2000 players from the
north east counties of Meath, Louth, Monaghan and Cavan will be joined by
top sides from Westmeath, Kildare, Galway and Dublin as well as teams from
Armagh and Down in the North at the Grange soccer grounds just outside
Kells in what has become the most successful underage pre-season soccer
tournament in the region.

Last season the Club introduced a shield competition for the first time
from under in all age groups which was a huge success.

Speaking before the tournament, which will see sides like Drogheda Boys,
Home Farm, Leixlip United, Peamount United, Cabinteely FC, St. Kevin’s
Boys, Cherry Orcahrd, Linfield  and  Shamrock Rovers compete, tournament organiser
Patrick Matthews said;

“Last season 166 teams, from under 9 to under 18, competed over three
weekends in glorious sunshine. The tournament has proven a great success
amongst the soccer community in the whole region and provides a great
opportunity for parents, managers and players from surrounding counties to
come together in what is a very competitive tournament in advance of the
new season.

Matthews concluded,

“Needless to say it takes a huge amount of organisation on a voluntary
basis to make a tournament like this a reality. A great deal of thanks must
go to the referees, first aiders, sponsors, the multitude of helpers and
the hard-working club committee of the KelllsBlackwater F. C. who make the
whole event run smoothly every year. We’re hoping for another great year in
