Ian Mitchell

Ian has been organising soccer tournaments, in and around Blackpool, for many years.  This year will be another mile stone:- 34 years of these tournaments.  Our aim has always been to provide an organised tournament with quality accommodation at an affordable price.  The key to the success of the tournament has been "team work" from hoteliers, Referees, the St John's Ambulance, through to the catering team.  We all try to work together to give the maximum enjoyment for the Players, Officials, Parents and Friends.

Lee Mitchell

Lee is part of our admin. team at the tournament.  He will be one of the first people that you will meet as he will be checking the registrations on arrival.  A qualified referee in his own right, he has officiated in the Northern Premier League.  Lee was also a member of the tournament team that started 31 years ago.

Peter has been involved in our tournaments since the inset some 31 years ago.  In his illustrious career, Peter has been a key figure in Local Junior and Adult Football on the Fylde coast, as well as a long serving referee in the Northern Premier League.  Since he hung up his whistle, Peter has devoted his time to work in the community.  It is a fitting tribute to him that he has twice been mayor of Kirkham and also deputy mayor of the Fylde.  He has been our tournament referee for the last 10 years.
