Congratulations to all the players who took part in a highly competitive and friendly competition held at Greenbank Sports Academy on 5th October. There were over a hundred competitors, who had travelled from as near as Fairfield to as far as Swansea.

Event organiser Steve Sullivan said “The standard of play was incredibly high, which is testament to the hard work of players, coaches and support staff in getting prepared for the event and encouraging fair play throughout the day.
I must also say a huge thank you to volunteers and referees who did an excellent job. The tournament ran smoothly and professionally, which is extremely important when we have so many competitors, from across the country.
We hope to encourage further development of this event for 2015 and look forward to seeing so many talented athletes participating again”.
