Fundraising football fun success
NEARLY 1000 people cheered and supported a local fundraising football competition last week raising money for an under-10’s football team.
The 2-day event took place last Saturday and Sunday at Lakeside Football pitch opposite Sainsbury’s in Chafford Hundred.
Paul Farr-Green, organised the event for the first time and was pleased at how it turned out.
He said: “Although we learned a lot over the weekend, I can’t wait to get started on the next one which is our pre-season tournament on September 8th and 9th 2018.
“There were several teams that successfully won their age group competition but really, everybody had a good time running around in the sun enjoying the beautiful game that is football.”
Paul added: “I’d like to thank everybody involved in helping to set the weekend up, a big thank you to Lakeside Sports Ground, the teams that participated, but most of all – thanks to all those who turned up and made the day as successful as it was.”
