‘Born Too Soon’ adult football tournament 2018
This year’s charity adult 5 aside football tournament in aid of ‘Born Too Soon’ took place on April 26th at Raynes Park Sports Ground. We had 12 teams enter this year which we split into three leagues. The winning teams from each league then went into the semi-finals plus the best placed runner up across the three leagues. Both semi-finals were tight games with both Target Sports Coaching teams making it through to the final. In the final the younger Target coaches team (Target Tots) started the stronger but the older coaches team (Target Ball Teasers) managed to keep them at bay. The game then turned on its head with Target Ball Teasers scoring three quick break away goals. The second half was much the same with Target Ball Teasers allowing the Tots to have possession and then catching them on the break, scoring two more goals. The Tots then fought back scoring three goals late on but was not enough to stop Target Ball Teasers who became the tournament winners. The day as a whole had a great atmosphere with lots of friends & family coming along to support the players. The weather was fantastic and there was a high standard of matches throughout. We managed to raise a £1000 which included team entry fees, generous individual donations and profits from the Target Cafe and will help support what is a great Charity. A big thank you to all who attended and help make the day a great success. We look forward to next year’s tournament which will hopefully be bigger and raise even more money for ‘Born Too Soon’.
