Thousands of footballers enjoy popular Wisbech St Mary tournament

MORE than 200 teams and around 1,500 players took to the field during Wisbech St Mary Football Club’s two-day tournament at the weekend.

The J.S. Holmes sponsored event - recognised as the largest five and six-a-side tournament in the Eastern region - once again delivered some fantastic football as boys, girls and ladies showed off their ball-playing skills.

Teams from across the county took part with many Fenland sides making finals in the junior ages which ranged from under-9s to under-16s.

Wisbech St Mary clinched the youngest age-range title after beating Riverside Rovers 3-1.

Despite fine performances throughout Outwell Under-11s lost 8-0 to Marlow Town and Chatteris Orange lost 1-0 to Arbury Under-14s in their respective finals.

Sue Deighton, tournament secretary, thanked all of those on the tournament committee who worked tirelessly over the past six months to organise the popular event.
