August is a month that always brings excitement and apprehension in the field of sport – football is back!

As part of our 12 months of charity, in support of Hope House, Severn Hospice, Lingen Davies, Jayne Sargent Foundation and Compton Care, we held our 5-a-side charity cup at Wrekin College.

Five teams took part; Lee’s Legends, Telford & Wrekin Council (T.W.C), Jim Mostyn’s Brollies, Pretzel Palace and our own Pensionlite Ducks. The teams played group matches with the top four advancing to the semi-finals.

All the games were played in a fantastic spirit and despite fitness levels perhaps not being at their highest, there was a tremendous amount of effort – not to mention some cracking goals and saves.

Lee’s Legends were crowned as eventual champions going through the group stage unbeaten and scoring a whopping 30 goals in the process. They continued that fine form throughout the finals beating T.W.C 17-1 in the grand final to lift the trophy.

We’d like say a big thank you to Wrekin College for letting us have use of their sports halls, and to all those people who came down to help and support the teams throughout the day.

The goal has always been about raising money for these amazing charities and every little bit will help towards our total which now stands at well over £5,000 for the year.
