Starting the ball rolling

FUTURE Harry Kanes and Raheem Stirlings can showcase their talents at a street football tournament in Cripplegate Park in July.

Fortis Living – in partnership with Worcester City Council, Freedom Leisure and Kidderminster Harriers – will be holding the games on Sunday, July 28.

From 10am to midday, under 16s can turn up and play for £1 while from midday to 3pm there will be an adult five-a-side tournament for teams from across the city for £25 per team.

Between 3pm and 5pm there’s a disability football tournament at £25 per team.

Paul Edwards, community officer at Fortis Living said: “This is the first time we have organised a football tournament on this level.

“Taking place in the summer holidays, it is a perfect day out for all the family. It also plays an important part in community cohesion, teaching players valuable life lessons such as inclusivity, teamwork, discipline, perseverance, goal setting, handling success and failure, time management and keeping fit.

An ‘inflatable pitch’ is being provided by Kidderminster Harriers for the duration of the event with all money being raised going to Disability Sport Worcester and Kidderminster-based Our Way Self Advocacy, which provides advocacy support for local people with learning disabilities.
