Flyers’ tournament is a showcase of talent

DOWNEND Flyers FC’s annual tournament was a thrilling showcase of local talent and passion. 

Around 1,000 girls and women took to the field across the weekend of June 24 and 25, with teams from across the region and further afield, including one which had travelled from Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

Each team displayed exceptional skills and dedication. 

With meticulous planning and flawless execution, the tournament organisers created a fun-filled weekend which celebrated inclusivity, unity and inspiring young girls to pursue their dreams.

The tournament’s success affirms the rising prominence of women’s football, leaving a lasting impact on the participants and supporters.

We would like to thank the local residents around Pomphrey Hill for their understanding and cooperation around that busy weekend.

Meanwhile the club is busily planning for the new season, with a record 19 girls’ teams set to play in the Bristol girls league and 3 women’s teams in adult regional leagues.

This summer we have also launched player sponsorship deals and mascot packages – for more information contact
