The two-day tournament, held at Corinthian-Casuals’ King George’s Arena in Tolworth is now in its sixth year and has become an established part of pre-season preparations.
Alan Dowson’s Ryman Premier side Hampton and Richmond are joined by hosts Corinthian-Casuals, who are led by the incoming James Bracken. Making up the four are Tooting & Mitcham United, with new manager Mark Hams in charge and Jim Cooper's Ryman Prem side Met Police.
The format sees two ‘semi-final’ matches on the Saturday, with 11am and 3pm kick-offs. The winners of each game, decided by penalties should the scores remain level at 90 minutes will then face each other for the prestigious Vase on Sunday 12th July at 3pm. The losers from Saturday will face each other in the early kick-off at 11am.
Admission is £8 per day or £12 for the weekend – working out at just £3 per match. Seniors are half price and under-16s are FREE with an accompanying adult. Supporters and visitors alike can enjoy a fully licenced bar, hot food and a full colour, glossy tournament programme.
Whatever the outcome of the four games, adding a competitive edge to the pre-season programme is always welcome and last year’s tournament saw no less than fifteen goals.
