On the Ball!
On Saturday 19th May, the annual Creative Support 5-a-side football tournament took place at the Powerleague Soccerdome in Blackburn.
Twenty teams participated in the tournament, which started with group stages on five pitches and then progressed to the knockout rounds before four teams made it to the cup and plate finals.
Vicvale Vikings from Cumbria eventually won the cup after a tense battle with Warrington Day Centre, and Parker’s Bangers from Scunthorpe took home the plate after facing Unit Tea One from Kendal in the final.
Parker’s Bangers were delighted with their victory, and it was a very special moment for Vicvale Vikings, who finally won the tournament after being runners-up for the past two years.
Before the presentation of the cup and the plate, there was a raffle with lots of fantastic prizes – so Parker’s Bangers and Vicvale Vikings weren’t the only lucky winners on the day!
At the end of the tournament, Chief Executive Anna Lunts presented Parker’s Bangers with the plate and Vicvale Vikings with the cup. The winning players also took home a special medal to mark their achievement and a representative from each team gave a speech to thank their players and supporters.
