Teams from across three counties will take part in a six-a-side football tournament to raise awareness of those affected by homelessness.

On June 24, Evergreen Football Club, an FA Standard Charter Community Club in Abbots Langley will host more than 120 teams in their annual six-a-side event.

Players from under six to under thirteen from Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire will all make an appearance and the tournament is to promote the work of the homeless charity, New Hope, in Watford. 

Club chairman, Mark Ward, said: “Our annual six-a-side tournament is a fantastic community event and every year it just gets more popular which makes it a very busy day for all our volunteers who give up their time to make sure the tournament runs smoothly. 

“We have a number of stalls this year to keep everyone well fed and refreshed and our recently refurbished clubhouse will be open where there is a small matter of a certain World Cup game taking place. 

“I am delighted that, this year, we are partnering with New Hope who do fantastic work with the homeless in and around the Watford area and we will use the tournament as a platform for them to raise the profile of the charity, spreading awareness and help them raise funds to support the fantastic work they do”. 

Sam Weightman, from New Hope’s fundraising and communications team, said: “We cannot say thank you enough for this amazing opportunity from Evergreen FC. 

“Community is at the heart of New Hope and without the incredible support from the generous residents of the Watford area and local community groups, New Hope would not be able to provide the support so needed in the local area. 

“This event will be a fantastic day for the children but also an amazing opportunity to raise awareness of homelessness in our town.”
