Each year Verwood Town YFC hold an annual 6-a-side tournament in June, formally known as the Rossgarth Tournament.


The tournament is well known to be one of the best tournaments in the area. Each year we teams enter from several counties. 


We are pleased to announce that we will also be joined for the weekend by: AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust with their Powerstrike machine, where you can test the speed of your penalty shot!





Registration will open in January 2020. Spaces in the tournament sell out extremely fast so we recommend you reserve your space as soon as possible. This year you will be able to register and pay for your space online, by clicking the relevant link below. Payment can be made via PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account to pay as you can check out as a guest. Any problems with payment please contact us.


The tournament allows Verwood Town YFC to raise vital funds for the club, and as a volunteer run organisation these funds allow the club to continue to grow, purchase equipment and develop and train our coaches further. This ensures that our players are given the best football experience we can offer, and allows us to keep our registration fees to a minimum.

The Age 6’s, Under 7’s and Under 8’s will play a “Friendly Football Festival” format where no results will be recorded and all players are awarded a medal for participation. All other age groups will be a competitive format where the Winners and Runners Up will win an award.


Unfortunately, due to FA rules, no child aged 5 can take part in the football festival, hence Age 6's is aimed at players aged 6 at the time of the tournament.

No academy teams permitted to enter. We welcome mixed teams and Girls only teams, but do not run a separate Girls only tournament.
