STFITC would like to sincerely thank the Big Yellow Self Storage centre for storing all of the generous donations and to DHL for transporting the 64 full boxes of donations.

The boys and girls took part in 7 a side competition with matches consisting of 10 minutes each way. The winners of the group stages within the boys categories and the best runner up progressed through to the Quarter Final stage. The girls’ tournament provided as much excitement off the pitch as on the pitch with girls dancing and singing for their teams whilst the boys’ games saw great celebrations every time the ball hit the back of the net. The Girls tournament consisted of two groups with the top two teams progressing onto the semi final stage. The overall winners of the Tournaments were;
