Nine teams consisting of 63 players took to the pitches at Leeds Road Playing Fields on Saturday 23rd July to battle it out at the John Cotton Football World Cup.

Each team was individually backed for the event by a company of their choice. The eventual team who won the 5-a-side tournament was ‘Amanda’s Boys’  who saw off ‘Pen Pushers United’  with a 1-0 win in the final.

Damian Williamson, a member of the John Cotton Nonwovens Division, who organised the tournament, said: “It was a great day with some competitive games played for a really good cause. In total, all the sponsorships raised just under £8,000 so we were really pleased with that and hope it will go a long way to hitting the target set this year.
