Excellent turnout for 16th annual Pyworthy five-aside

By The Post in Football

THE 16th annual Pyworthy five-aside tournament was held in the village on Saturday, July 8.

This year there were 36 entries, with teams coming from all over Devon and Cornwall.

The teams were split into five age groups — under 8s, under 9s and 10s, under 11s and 12s, under 13s and 14s and under 15s and 16s — with each age group then being split into groups with the winners and runners-up then taking part in the semi-finals and finals.

The matches took part on three pitches, with two on the grass and one on the main multi-use games area pitch.

As well as the football, there were also plenty of refreshments available including a BBQ, cakes and sweets. A raffle was also held as the tournament looks to raise funds towards the maintenance of the multi-use games area.

Organiser, Tracey Langman, was pleased with the event, saying: “It was another excellent tournament. Thankfully we were blessed with some lovely weather and there was also plenty of good football played.”
