2016 Play For The Memory Tournament
It’s the second Year of PFTM and A NEW SET of Champions have emerged victorious; Goal Star Soccer!! GSS showed us that after a shaky start they had the quality to win the high level Mens 7 aside tournament.
Led by Captain Theo Jones,
Goal star soccer provided us with some fantastic moments, however, they certainly did it the hard way. Goal Star Soccer finished 4th in their group to take the final qualifying spot, they beat last years Champions Power Circle 7 in a Penalty shootout in the Quarter Finals, they went onto to beat last years semi finalists (Crown&Manor) in this Year’s Semi Finals and then took down the power of AFC Wembley who had not lost one game all Tournament… What a day, What a Tournament!!!
Moments like these really show you what Play for The Memory Tournaments are about. Captain Theo and his team won for a fantastic cause and donated £1000 of the Prize Money to Cerebral Palsy in memory of Young Giovanni who unfortunately lost his battle with the illness but was and will always be remembered. Giovanni was a boy who loved football and sport, through this donation it will allow young people affected by Cerebral Palsy to take part in sports that so many of us take for granted said Theo.
The day proved to be fantastic as always played in great competitive spirit!!!
Stay tuned for the video clips, pictures are now live on our twitter and our Instagram!! So share and spread the word and we look forward to seeing you at our next set of tournaments.
