The 2014 Soccerfest Cup was a great success with over £4367 raised for a national charity.
Men united at the home of The New Saints to raise awareness of Prostate Cancer UK with a mini, five aside World Cup football match of local businesses. Over 32 local teams made up of businesses took part in the tournament.
The event was held at The New Saints’ Park Hall Stadium and was organised by Morgans of Oswestry and The New Saints Community Foundation.
A family fun day was held around the five aside event at The Venue, with teams of up to seven players drawn from businesses in the area, playing group stages, quarter and semi finals before the final. The winners of the competition were ABP Boys and were presented with the Soccerfest Charity Cup.
Paul Rowney of Morgans said, ‘I would like to thank everyone who was involved with the event. It was a great success and we are planning on doing it again next year. It is a great event to get into and we are hoping to double the amount we raised next year.’
Roger Fallon of Prostate Cancer UK said, ‘It is great that the event has been able to raise awareness but equally important is the fundraising. To get groups like this to raise over £4000 is fantastic and I would like to thank everyone in Oswestry.’
Ian Williams of TNS said, ‘We saw this particular event as something that we would like to be involved in and thanks to Morgans of Oswestry we have been able to carry out the event and raise awareness for a very important charity. The event was really well organised and we are looking forward to making it even better next year.’
