U11 Junior Wix  

MARCH 2020

Junior Wix Quarter Finals

The boys tournament will be on Thursday 26th March 2020 and the girls on Friday 27th March 2020, to be played on the 3G at Parmiters School on High Elms Lane in Watford.

The first games kick off at 4:00pm and there will be a managers meeting at 3:45pm. Parents and spectators must remain behind the fence at all times - please enforce this onto them on the day.

Players must wear moulded boots or astro trainers, no metal studded boots.

 

Each school must also bring a spare set of shirts or bibs in case of a colour clash. There is access to changing rooms at this time.

The year after Mr Wix died, his daughters,  Margaret and Dorothy, donated a new shield to be played for by Primary Schools. In due course Margaret accepted the title of President, was Mayor of St Albans, and gave her name to the current Margaret Wix School.

 

The number of entries for this competition diminished with the introduction of small-sided football in Junior Schools but the appointment of Ben Reid and a change of format to 9-a-side (to reflect the current FA Policy) should ensure it’s future. The Wix has always been able to re-invent itself.

 

The final has been hosted by Mike Brass at Giles School (Stevenage) for many years, then at Harvesters FC (St Albans). From 2015 it has formed part of a Wix Finals Night at Woollams, appropriately a decent goal kick or two away from Margaret Wix School.
