Summer Football Festival

On Thursday 12th July we delivered our Summer Football Festival for A League of Their Own. (Disabled adults)

To Celebrate the World Cup, we organised a Championship style tournament. Four groups followed by knock out.

To make it fairer for our less able players, we also ran a Plate competition where the bottom teams in the group went through to the Plate.

The Mayor of Royal Greenwich, Councillor Christine May and the Deputy Mayor of Royal Greenwich, Councillor Mick Hayes attended the whole event. Many thanks to you both.

Thank you also for attending to Len Duvall OBE, Chair of Board of Governors for SLSL.

Fortunately the weather was kind, being a little cooler after our ongoing heatwave.

Winners of the Cup: Greenwich FC
Runners up: Hornbeam
A: Waltham Forest
INUF: Newham

Plate winners: St Johns Sharks FC and St Johns Freestyle FC shared the trophy
3rd Place: Valance FC (Tower Hamlets).

The Summer Cup was gifted to SLSL by our Deputy Chairperson Paul Russell. Hence the Cup will be called the Paul Russell Trophy.
