KICKS TOURNAMENT RAISES MONEY FOR PROSTATE CANCER UK

A BURTON Albion Community Trust (BACT) social inclusion project has held a football tournament in a bid to help raise awareness for a men’s health issue, Prostate Cancer.

The weekly ran Kicks project, held the tournament at it’s Friday night Anglesey 3G pitch session last week, with all monies raised going to Prostate Cancer UK. The tournament, which saw five teams entered from different  sides from across the Burton area, raised a total of £40.28. The participants ranged from ages 11 years old to 18 year old and were rewarded for their regular participation in weekly sessions.

Haseeb Tajmal, BACT’s tournament coordinator on the evening, said: “The tournament was very competitive and very intense. All the teams played each other once and the top two teams would qualify for the final. PGFC and the Unbeatables finished with the same points and coincidentally, the same goal difference, just emphasising how close the tournament was. The final ended equal and it needed a penalty shoot-out to separate the two teams, ending in PGFC winning. Personally, I’d like to thank all the participants for attending and making this tournament a success and of course, donating for such a great cause.
