This year’s Hunslet Club Football Gala took place on Sunday 12 June.
The day began at 9am when the young grassroots teams from all over West Yorkshire came together to compete against others in several 8 minute matches.
In addition to the tournament taking place across 9 different pitches, a range of family fun activities were made available around the club and car park. Here, there was a barbecue, inflatables, games, stalls, bouncy castles, music and a stand to celebrate and receive medals/trophies.
It was great to see the young footballers demonstrate such brilliant sportsmanship. With every game came a relationship with a new team, and lots of the attendees even made new friends on the sidelines.
Our coaches and volunteers ensured the day ran smoothly ensuring every player got to perform to the best of their ability. Hundreds of parents, supporters, friends and family cheered from the sidelines as they watched each action packed game commence.
Our coaches, volunteers, staff and teams went above and beyond to make the day so special. The football gala is a so important to all of the young people who attend.
Every year we prioritise making memories, creating opportunities and building new relationships.
Moreover, all proceeds go towards providing 35 affordable football sessions for young people in our community each week.
A huge thank you to all teams who came along: Millifields Green, Garforth Rangers, Hunslet FC, Millfields White, Chapeltown, Howden Clough Leeds West FC, Yorkshire Amateurs, North East Leeds, Tingley Athletic, Methley United, Rothwell Girls, Churwell Lions, Wortley, LS27, Rothwell Juniors, Horsforth, Rothwell Town Reds, Whitkirk, Swillington, Leeds Jrs, Morley Glenn, Selby Town and Normanton Town.
