Match report for Sandwell Special Olympics Football Tournament


It was an early start for a Sunday morning but that didn’t stop 16 players coming along to play in the tournament. The players were split into two teams of Eight with Owen Faville captaining one team and Katharine Hyslop the other.

Both teams had several games during the day, and the teams got better as the day and competition went on. All players were pushed to their footballing best, and put in maximum effort throughout, there was a fantastic sporting ethos on display whether the teams won or lost a game. Many of the coaches, officials and organisers mentioned how sporting Midland Mencap had played and acted throughout the tournament.

Owens team came second in their league. Well done to Owen who scored three goals and to the whole team who worked really well as a unit.

Kath’s team play off match went to penalty shoot outs. Well done to Rob, Matthew, Jo and Kath who all took and scored their penalty. Big high five to Jerome who saved three out of four of the other team’s penalties. Well done to Liam for scoring in a match. Congratulations to Matthew who got Midland Mencap’s player of the day for his three goals and being the most improved player.

Finally, The Sports team and the players would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents, family and friends that were able to support the players on the day- your continuing support from the sidelines means alot to everyone involved!

What a fantastic day, but don’t just take our word for it here are some comments from the day.
