600 enjoy Hunslet Club’s football gala

The Hunslet Club held its third annual football gala at Parkside playing fields on Sunday 21 May 2017.

The event goes from strength to strength and this year attracted its biggest crowd ever with over 600 boys and girls taking part throughout the day in over 100 matches of 5 and 6 a side football.

Craig Gilmore Sports Development Manager at The Hunslet Club commented: “Clubs from all over West Yorkshire took part and the standard of football was great to watch with lots of smiles and skills on show”

As per FA rules all the children from Under 6’s to Under 10’s  played in a friendly tournament where every child received a medal for taking part and in the Under 11’s, 12’s and Under 13’s played to win in a trophy event.

Well done Ossett Town Under11s, Whinmoor Juniors Under 13s and The Hunslet Clubs  very own Under 12s for winning the Trophy in their age  group categories.

The Hunslet Club would like to thank all the teams that took part on the day and  the brilliant team of volunteers that made the event such a great success.
