A FANTASTIC DAY OF WALKING FOOTBALL RESULTS IN £510 BEING RAISED FOR CHARITY
A total of £510 was raised for the Bobby Moore Fund at Lincolnshire FA’s Walking Football Tournament on Sunday 4 August, with five teams from Lincolnshire taking part on the day.
The tournament, which was organised in support of The FA’s partnership with Cancer Research UK to raise awareness of bowel cancer prevention, welcomed teams from Gainsborough, Stamford, Long Bennington and Coningsby for a two-hour competition on the brand-new, state-of-the-art 4G facility at Yarborough Leisure Centre in Lincoln.
Playing in a round-robin format competition, Discovery Sports Coaching from Coningsby were the eventual winners of the tournament, beating Stamford Strollers 2-1 in a tense penalty shootout.
All teams played the game in great spirits, helping to raise a fantastic total of £510.00 for the Bobby Moore Fund.
Jake Park, Male Football Development Officer at Lincolnshire FA, said: “The day was a real success. I believe it was the first walking football tournament that Lincolnshire FA has organised in quite a while, and it couldn’t have been for a better cause. We have raised a good amount of money for the Bobby Moore Fund and hopefully increased awareness of bowel cancer prevention in the process.
“I would personally like to say a big thank you to Simon West, a volunteer fundraiser for Cancer Research UK who was present on the day and raised over £100 on the raffle and football card. In addition to Simon, I’d also like to thank the two match officials. Both Jay and Ryan did exceptionally well and I hope they will both continue to referee walking football moving forward.”
