WOODLEY United FC held their first annual smaller side tournament which was attended by 83 teams representing the south and south east of England recently, but the local clubs took the most honours.

A total of 260 matches – which included two penalty shoot-outs in the knockout stages that were won 11-10 and 10-9 in close matches – took place across six age groups raging from Under 10 to U15.

The tournament took place at Bulmershe School, and was supported by sponsors The Blue Moose Graphic Company, MCH Vehicle Rental and SC Hill Building & Property Maintenance.

Woodley United chairman, Colum Moon, said: “It was great to see participating players across all age groups enjoying the event and to receive positive and constructive feedback from visiting managers, coaches and supporters.

“The tournament has generated vital funding for the club to continue to increase opportunities to play, develop and grow sports participation in the local community.”

He continued: “Delivering a successful tournament is only possible with the combined resources of our sponsors, the support of Bulmershe School and crucially the exceptional exceptional hard work of our club volunteers.

“As this was our first tournament, we have learnt a great deal about delivering a successful event to further improve for next year.”
