We're ready if you are?

Downhill Complex is a distant memory now, but Sassco 6-a-side keeps failing to die off. Now it's a 5-a-side tournament played over a few hours over a single day, which will be classed as Season 19.

In 2016, we played in the new Everyone Active venue at Galleries, Washington on a Saturday and Posithread were the winners on that sunny afternoon in a five team tournament, with Crown Electrics, Sunderland Deaf FC, and newcomers AEL United.

For Season 19, we could look at similar. Venue is likely to be Galleries, Washington, due to great costs (so we can keep match costs down) and date hasn't been confirmed, but we're looking at four teams, one of whom will be Sassco, and the other, hopefully Posithread.

Or, we can climb over whatever's there at Downhill.
