2018 RAMMAR tournament at MTFC's Elcot Lane Ground - a great success, even the weather!

 

Marlborough Youth FC ( MYFC) hosted the annual RAMMAR (RAMsbury & MARlborough) tournament against Ramsbury FC in glorious sunshine on Sunday 3 June

 

Forty four teams totallimng 270 players took part across over eighty matches in what was a feast of football in front of a crowd estimated to be well over five hundred, all enjoying the football and the fine weather.   World Cup - move over.....!

 

There was something for ages at each end of the spectrum.  As well as the youth competition there was an exhibition of Walking Football, for those over the age of 55.

 

MYFC is now a large club with around 300 active players butthere hasn't been a regular home.  Previpously matches have been played at the Marlborough Rugby Club  Being so big and so fragmented as a Club, MYFC do not have a permanent home. As such they have in the past hosted the event at Marlborough Rugby Club on the Common, The College - both on the Watermeadows and on the synthetic pitches, also at St John's, that MArlborough Town's elcot Lane facilities were used.

 

MYFC and MTFC are working increasingly closely in partnership, aligning the two clubs and creating a smooth and natural transition from youth to senior football (some of our last season's U18 players are in fact now playing for MTFC, and MYFC hope that this will be a continuing feature into the future).

Pictures from RAMMAR were taken by Jeff Youd and can be viewed on his site by clicking here.

 

Ramsbury FC's Vice Chair, Jon Symon commented:  "Ramsbury Football Club and Marlborough Youth Football Club have been friendly rivals for some time and the annual RAMMAR Cup is always a highlight for both clubs.  We take turns each year to organise a superb festival of football.  This year's event was wonderfully hosted by Marlborough Youth Football Club, at Marlborough Town Football Club's ground in Elcot Lane, and saw the most teams participate ever with a noticeable increase of all girl Marlborough Angels teams, which was great to see. Although Ramsbury ended the day as outright winners of the RAMMAR Cup 2018, following two years of Marlborough victories, the excellent organisation, blazing sunshine and wealth of young local footballing talent made this year's RAMMAR Cup a huge success".

 

IN response, MYFC chair stuart Slater replied:  “Jon is right.  An amazing day and amazing youth football in our community. Well done to Ramsbury who were worthy winners! MYFC’s next annual event is the PEWMAR tournament, MYFC v Pewsey, same place at MTFC/Elcot Lane on Saturday1 September.  A date for your diaries!”

 

The Club has asked that to list the following for thanks for the very successful day:
