Cup winners think positive
‘POSITIVE Futures’ were the winning team for the second year running as Suffolk FA’s ‘One Game, One Community Cup’ came to a close at Whitton Sports Centre on October 21.
The winning team edged out a Suffolk FA & FA Tesco SKills staff side in the final during over two weeks of initiatives and action which promoted the benefits of affiliated football to people from new and diverse communities.
This year’s competition attracted university students, Positive Futures and Homeless and vulnerable adult organisations Christchurch House and YMCA.
Christchurch House were awarded the Fair Play Trophy for their attitude and enjoyment towards the game and were a credit to their organisation on the day.
Suffolk FA Get Into Football Officer James Payne who played in the Suffolk FA staff team enjoyed the event and stated “It was brilliant to get the chance to take part against players from projects I’ve been working on and the spirit out there today was great.”
