Squads can be from 6-8 players and must include at least 2 men and 2 women.

At any one time whilst playing, there should be a minimum of 2 men and 2 women playing. The rest of the team is up to you but there can only be a maximum of 2 16–18-year-old players in your squad. If you need to find some ladies, we’re sure the Crawley Old Girls (COGs) will be able to help!

Have you got what it takes to win the Les Turnbull Memorial Cup, which was last won in 2019 by Athletico Bilbrow.

Take your chance to play on the hallowed turf at the People’s Pension Stadium.

Each player will need to raise a minimum sponsorship of £20 each to play, which will be shared between the CTSA, The Stroke Association and the Dannie Bulman benefit fund.

If you need a form to collect sponsorship money, there is one available to download here – Festival of Football Player Sponsorship Form 2022

To reserve your team’s place, team sheets must be completed with the initial 6 players’ names and emailed to

Entries will be on a first come, first served basis.
