Football

We at the Purple Carrot like to organise the odd thing or two and football is no different with a couple of regular tournaments per year

Fat Boys  Invitational Tournament – Summer time &

Elders FFOB Challenge Cup – October

 

The Fatboys Invitational has been run on a yearly basis since 2010, sometime in May or June.  Held at the Downlands School 3G pitches in Hassocks this 7-a-side friendly day out has grown from 4 teams to what we currently call capacity of 12 in 2018. Age of competitors range from 14 – 68 and teams come from Hassocks and the surrounding area, Brighton, London and even St Albans!

2019 is likely to be played on FA cup final day in May

Winter Development Programme

To aid and abet some of our youngsters growing up and getting used to playing with older, more “street-wise” opposition we mixed it up with teams containing youth (18 and under) and aged (40 plus). A recent development in our football tournament pantheon some people are just so crazy for the action they must get a game in between Christmas and New Year, and who are we to do anything but help facilitate this need
