Steve Flynn, Chairman said: “This year one of our managers approached us about organising a tournament after hearing about the fundraising efforts of our chosen charity, JordanGrant18, which brings heart screening to local children.

“It was great to see so many under seven teams on Conway Park coming together to enjoy their shared passion whilst raising important funds for the charity.  It was also a great chance for us to remember Jordan Grant, Melissa Smith and Mick Munnelly – all loved and respected club members who were taken too soon.”
