Walking Football tournament raises nearly £400!!

Well done to all the Many Shades who took part in last Sunday’s tournament in Leigh Park.

Below is the press release from Emsworth :

A Walking Football Tournament held at Park Community School, Leigh Park, has raised nearly £400 to be divided equally between Sport Relief and Against Breast Cancer.

Organised by Emsworth & Hayling Island Walking Football Club eight teams from: Emsworth, Havant & Waterlooville (2 teams), Hayling Island, Portsmouth (2 teams), Southampton, and a misfit team called ‘One Step Beyond’ played more than 5 games each during which ‘player fines’ for minor transgressions added to the charities coffers.  All the teams entered into the spirit of the occasion by dressing appropriately for the occasion.  Emsworth sported pink bras in honour of one of their player’s wives who died last year from Breast Cancer.  Hayling Island sported pink tutus – which they took an unnatural fondness to !  Portsmouth Pinks looked very fetching in shoulder length pink wigs, and one of the 3 referees dressed as a clown !

Afterwards Havant & Waterlooville Walking Football Club – who won the tournament – kindly hosted a buffet for all the participants back at their Westleigh Club House where a never ending raffle further added to the funds raised.
