Washington AFC

Erin's Marathon Match

On Saturday 30th August 2014 The Club will be holding Erin's Marathon Match at the Northumbria Centre, Washington NE37 3HR for everyone to be involved in.


The marathon match is for anyone aged 16+ male or female, games will be played in 20 min blocks and anyone can turn up and play - a £5 'pay to play' donation is all we are asking. The aim is to keep the football match going for 4 hours.

For young players we ask parents to make a £2 donation per child with ALL money donated to the charities and they will play small sided games.  I am aware that RFYL are holding tournaments on this day.  I ask that if you have entered then you can still be part of the event by attending later in the day to be part of the event.   For those not entered in the RFYL or any other tournament please make every effort to support such a worthwhile event even if you are away. 

The time slots are as follows:

10-11am - U7, U8 and U9
11-12pm - U10, U11
12-1pm - U12, U13, U14, U15 and U16
1-3pm - Anyone aged 16+ (charity games above to be included here)
3.15- 4.15pm - a memorial game between Erinís team; Washington AFC U13 Wildcats and another local girls team

Followed by the raffle and auction and then a BBQ

The day will include:
Family fun day with activities for children of all ages
Fun round robin football games for boys and girls from U7-U16
Cake stalls
Charity matches between Dads and coaches from Washington AFC and local clubs
