Engage 5-a-side tournament at Dimensions

Engage Communities hosted another free five-a-side football tournament on Saturday 9th March, 2014 at Dimensions Leisure Centre on the new 3G astro-turf pitches. We introduced for the first time a new under 25-age category and also fair play, top goal scorer and player of the tournament awards. The overall day as always proved very popular attracting more than 200 young people. The winners of the tournament were given free tickets to the Port Vale v Walsall game. In this tournament we had new first time winners in both the under-16 & under-25 categories. The under 16 finalists consisted of teams made up from both the Tunstall and Burslem areas of Stoke-on-Trent. The semi-final was very close between the previous titleholders that have won every 5-a-side tournament we’ve held Shelton Young’unz. The talented local team from Shelton lost on sudden death penalties to Tunstall FC. Congratulations to the following winning teams and award winners:

Under 16 age group winners & runners-up:
Stokes Unstoppable’s (winners)
Tunstall FC (runners-up)

Under 25 age group winners & runners-up:
Boca Juniors (winners)

Most Outstanding Player Award: Arfan Mohammed, Tunstall FC
