Hunslet Club triumph in Charles Stanley charity football tournament

An impressive ten teams took part in this year’s Charity 5-a-side football tournament, raising funds for The Hunslet Club. The event, which took place on Sunday 27 May 2018, was organised by the Leeds office of Charles Stanley Wealth Managers and featured teams from Leeds’s accountancy, legal, banking and marketing sectors.

A  massive thanks goes to BHP Chartered Accountants, DWF, Eversheds Sutherland, Intermarketing Agency, Pinsent Masons, Schofield Sweeney, Shulmans and Yorkshire Bank, as well as teams from Charles Stanley and The Hunslet Club. The latter two both through to the final which ended with a 3-1 win to The Hunslet Club.

Over £800 was raised from teams’ entry donations and on behalf of The Hunslet Club and Charles Stanley we are very grateful for their support of the event.

Dennis Robbins, Chief Executive Officer of The Hunslet Club and on hand to present the trophy on the night said:

“We are delighted that Adam and the team at Charles Stanley chose The Hunslet Club again this year as host venue and beneficiary of their annual football tournament. It was great to see our talented Under 21 squad who started playing football  through the club’s junior football section not only take part in the day but scoop the trophy. We can’t wait for the re-match!”

Organiser Adam Martell, Investment Manager at Charles Stanley commented:

“It was amazing to see 10 teams take part this year on three pitches across a superbly prepared playing surface. I was really pleased to see so many from the year before, as well as plenty of new teams, as the tournament goes from strength to strength. Even the sunshine joined us this year too! We’re very grateful to the support shown by the local business community, as well of course the hard work of the staff and volunteers at the Club.”

Jonathan Baker, Branch Manager at Charles Stanley’s Leeds office said:

“We are very pleased to support The Hunslet Club and help raise the profile further of the important work they do within Leeds. They are a fantastic club, with a hugely positive impact on the local community and in schools. We look forward to continuing to support them in the future.”
