The Club took part in the FA initiative – ‘England Day’ – on Saturday 12th June by organising a free of charge mini World Cup Competition for 8 teams representing teams from the England and Brazil World Cup Groups. Over 40 boys and girls aged 4 to 8 took part in a non-competitive tournament with each player getting 3 games. Boys from the Club’s Academy and Girls’Academy also attended.
The budding Rooneys took part in the event that took place at Cheslyn Hay Community Sports High School. Wyrley Juniors organised the pitches, referees and the fixtures to enable the players to celebrate England’s first game against USA later in the day.
The Club were delighted with the success, particularly as 9 new players were attracted and will be signed up to the Club’s Academy that takes place every Saturday morning 10.30 to 12.00 at Cheslyn Hay Community Sports High School – parents of boys aged 4 to 7 interested in attending should contact Andy on 07834556599.
Thanks go to to Andy Parfitt and Carl Parfitt, Emily Quimby and Shaun Ponder for helping organise the successful event.
