On Sunday the 30th August a specially selected team was invited to contest a charity football tournament in aid of the charity “Charity for Kids” Invited by a local company Interface Group and
made up of 10 local companies including Interface and Drallim we were happy to take part.
The Millard Trust sponsored the team and paid the entry fees in full. The team consisted of Carl Baldwin (Manager), Jason Beckwith, Ian Matthews, James Coram, John Simpson (Goalkeeper), Joe Grech, Richard Ferguson, Nick Walker, Liam Baldwin, Keir Hobson and Reece Thomas.
The teams were made into two separate leagues of 5 teams in each, The winner of each league would compete in a one off final to see who would be the outright tournament winner and the runners up would contest 3rd place.
Drallim went through the whole league stage without losing a game and only drawing one. Drallim then went on to beat Birchwood Ford in a Tightly contested final winning the game Both goals coming from Liam Baldwin.
Consequently it was Birchwood who drew with Drallim in the league stages. Drallim coming back from 2 – 0 down to draw the game 2 -2. Nick Walker won player of the tournament and it was a fantastic day all in all. The trophy is sitting in the lobby display cabinet which was presented to the team on the day. A quick note to say that Drallim’ s Manager “Carl Baldwin” had a few words with the very weak refs on occasion!
