This Sunday Team SMO held its first Festival of Football as part of the brilliant East Yorkshire Show and Family Fun Day at Brantingham Park.
Operated by Dalton Spire who produce the popular Hull Mag, the East Yorkshire Show and Family Fun Day was attended by thousands of visitors who came to enjoy outdoor music, food, entertainment, arts and crafts and children’s activities.
Working in Partnership with the East Riding FA, we organised our first ever Festival of Football which comprised of a tournament for 4 under 8’s Boys teams, free demonstrations of the popular Mini-Kicks and Speedtest UK, a football game which tests how fast you can kick a ball.
The teams entering the tournament were:
- Westella and Willerby
- Sproatley FC
- Hessle Sporting Panthers
- Elloughton Blackburn
Westella and Willerby and Sproatley battled through to a highly contested final, and some real football skills were on show throughout the day from all teams. Westella and Willerby came away with the SMO Rosettes as winners and all children received sweets and a Family ticket to see Hull Pirates Ice Hockey team.
We would like to express a huge thank you to all the managers and parents who came along on the day and supported and we look forward to a bigger and better Festival of Sport in 2017.
