Walking Football Tournament with World Cup Theme
The South Notts Walking Football tournament was hosted at East Leake Leisure centre by St. Mary’s Church Men’s Group. The event had a World Cup theme as it was held in the middle of the Russia 2018 tournament.
The tournament kicked-off at about 10.15am and there were five teams that entered – these teams were assigned countries participating in Russia 2018:
• St. Mary’s, East Leake – Brazil
• The Simcox Super Stars team – England
• St. Paul’s, Wilford Hill – Senegal
• St. Luke’s, Gamston – Uruguay
• Hucknall WF team – Poland
The tournament was played on a league basis with the league winners playing the runners-up in the World Cup final. Poland were the league winners with Uruguay finishing as runners-up.
In a close and tight World Cup final match, Uruguay emerged as winners and so St Luke’s were presented with the South Notts Walking Football trophy for the second year having won the trophy at last year’s tournament.
After the tournament, the teams were invited back to St. Mary’s Rectory for a barbecue.
