Halloween Night Football Tournament. Friday, 31 October 2014
Engage Communities held another free popular six-a-side football tournament on Friday 31st October 2014 at The Co-operative Academy. The tournament was held on Halloween night to help keep kids off the streets and divert them from anti-social behaviour. It was a great tournament with numerous talented youngsters and teams displaying their skills on the day. We had 14 teams in total playing in the tournament with 112 young people participating. We would also like to thank all the young volunteers for helping on the day. Finally thanks to the parents, family and friends for supporting the young people and their teams on the day. Congratulations to Burslem Bullets for winning the under 15 category and Galacticos for winning the under 18 group. The winners were given free tickets to watch a Port Vale match. We used the Bala Pro Fairtrade footballs throughout the tournament once again.
