YMCA DLG resident football tournament a great success

Football Tournament 1

On Friday 14th August YMCA DLG resident five-a-side football tournament took place at The Holbrook Club in Horsham. The event was a great success, with 5 teams from Sussex and Surrey competing for the trophies.

Teams were made up of supported housing residents from Guildford, Brighton, Mid Sussex, Crawley and Horsham. All the players were on time and even the rain could not dampen the excitement. Other residents and keyworkers were there to support and cheer for their teams.

The teams all played each other once with games lasting ten minutes. The two teams with the most points then played each other in the final.

The overall winners were Mid Sussex who beat Horsham 4-1 in the final.

The tournament was played in a great spirit with high fives between opposing teams watching on the sidelines when good goals were scored. The players got on well with each other even when the action got a bit spicy in the heat of the battle.

The winners and runners up were presented with trophies after the game and all the talk was of when the next tournament would be.

It is hoped that this will become a quarterly event as this one proved to be such a success.
