This past weekend, the Buckhurst Hill Football Club hosted an unforgettable event: the Buckhurst Hill Weekend Invitational.

By Alex Skamiotis

Boys and girls from all over Essex, East and North London came together for a fantastic weekend of football, fun, and community spirit. The event was a resounding success, with lots of smiles and happy faces all around.

The Invitational was more than just a series of matches; it was a celebration of youth football and the vibrant community that supports it. From the moment the first whistle blew, the atmosphere was electric. Young players demonstrated their skills, teamwork, and sportsmanship, creating memorable moments on the pitch.

In addition to the thrilling football action, there were plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained. An ice cream van served up delicious treats, while inflatables provided endless fun for the younger attendees. The BBQ was a hit, offering a variety of mouth-watering options that kept everyone fueled throughout the day. Our clubhouse bar was also open, providing a space for parents and supporters to relax and enjoy the festivities.

The event was a true community effort, and we are incredibly grateful to everyone who participated and helped make it a success. Here are some of the kind words shared by opposing managers:

  • “The Buckhurst Hill Invitational was fantastically organized. The kids had an amazing time, and the atmosphere was incredibly welcoming and positive. We can’t wait to come back next year!”
  • “Well done to your boys on the win the other day mate. I was proper struggling with hay fever 😂 we had a tournament the day before and it was ok. But was very much get the teams in, get their money and get them out the door. Buckhurst Hill have put on such an amazing family/fun day. Football was great and competitive but all the officials and volunteers made it really special. Well done to you and everyone involved at the club 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻”
  • “Our team had a blast! The facilities were top-notch, and the additional activities made it a fun day out for the whole family. Kudos to Buckhurst Hill for putting together such a great event.”
  • “It was a joy to see so many young players from different areas come together and enjoy the game. The hospitality was second to none, and the whole experience was very well thought out.”

None of this would have been possible without the dedication and hard work of our Tournament Committee, which included Katie, Alex, James, Andrew, Ciaran, Simon, and all the referees. A special mention goes to our very own Harry Biggs, who not only refereed games but also helped on both days when the tech let us down. His incredible performance and unwavering commitment were instrumental in ensuring everything ran smoothly.
