Cirencester Town's first Junior Six-a-Side Tournament for several years, ably organised by our Clubman of the Year Mark O'Brien, took place at The Corinium over the weekend of 13th and 14th June 2009.

The Tournament comprised 84 teams from numerous local clubs across all junior age groups from Under 8's through to Under 16's, necessitating very tight scheduling of matches all weekend, and we unfortunately had to decline some applications because of oversubscription of some of the age groups.

Our thanks go to everyone who helped to make the tournament such a great success and Mark would particularly like to thank the following people for their efforts:

After the tournament, a number of people wrote to us, thanking us for holding such a well-organised and successful event. The following is a sample of their comments:
