As part of Carlisle United Community Sports Trusts Inclusion provision, we hosted James Rennie, Mayfield and Hexham Priory for our Football for All tournament.
The three teams took part in some skills-based activities delivered by our coaches in the Neil Sports Centre.
After the students showed off their impressive passing, dribbling and shooting skills we gave them a behind the scenes tour of Brunton Park.
On the tour the pupils enjoyed looking around the home and away changing rooms and the view from the directors' box.
From there the tournament started with some amazing goals, teamwork and sportsmanship showcased throughout the matches.
To celebrate the day each player was awarded a medal and each team a trophy to take back to their schools, kindly provided by Steven Pattison from Carlisle Glass.
We would like to thank all the schools, pupils and teaching staff for attending our tournament and would also like to give a special thanks to the clubs EDI Officer, Nigel Davidson, for generously offering to pay for refreshments throughout the day.
Ryan Godderidge, CST Inclusion Officer, said: "We’re really pleased with how well the tournament went. It was good to see the students have such a great time throughout the day and they were so pleased when they received their medals and trophies."
Chris Tweddle, Mayfield School teacher, said: "The children were buzzing all the way home and it was such a good experience for them. Some of them are still wearing their medals this morning. Seeing the children interact with other children and staff was one of the highlights of the day."
