Streets Ahead 5-a-side tournament raises £2,000 for our Foundation helping local good causes
The first Streets Ahead Foundation charity 5-a-side football tournament at Whyteleafe Football Club got off to an amazing start raising £2,000 for local good causes.
Despite early showers, the sun finally came out for the 120 players who turned out on Sunday morning (July 5th) for a great day of football.
The tournament was hotly contested by two dozen teams.
Many friends and family came to watch as estate agents and contractors from as far as Bournemouth and Leeds battled it out on the pitch.
Finally at 3pm in blazing sunshine Barnard Marcus Estate Agents and D. Young Electrical Services reached the final, with the team from D. Young (pictured here) clinching the match by 5 goals to 1.

Everyone from the players to the spectators, and family and friends, as well as all the Streets Ahead staff, had a fantastic day, with over £2,000 being raised for the Streets Ahead Foundation.
Huge thanks go out to our kind sponsors of the event, Bryden Johnson Chartered Accountants, Wisby Ltd and Peter Antill as well as Whyteleafe Football Club for enabling us to host the tournament.
On the back of this success, we are already planning a considerably bigger football tournament for the summer of 2016.
