Five a side football tournament/ Watton Games

Five a side football tournament/ Watton Games

On the 24 July 2010 The Wayland Chamber of Commerce was asked by Brecklands sports officer, Stefan Clifford, to assist with the preparation and promotion of a five a side football tournament which was held at Watton Sports Centre at part of a Watton Games Event. The primary factor of the event was to bring together various community members of the Wayland Area through the joy of football.

As a result and within the spirit of the recent world cup, we had an international team, some very lost rugby players, a team fielded by Breckland themselves and our own Chamber business members NetMatters Limited entered a team and did the Chamber very proud (well at the beginning and middle anyway). In all 12 teams battled it out to be the winning team.

Watton Sports Centre provided much needed BBQ as we all sat outside in the glorious sunshine watching the teams play. Thankyou Alan for providing the burgers but next time can we have onions also?

The winners of the tournament were Watton under 18ís which was very apt given the location of the event. I was extremely proud to be asked to hand out the medals to the winners and look forward to supporting our business community partaking in future local sporting events. It is the responsibility of the Chamber to be involved in local community events and i look forward to attending more.

I as Chair of the Wayland Chamber of Commerce was asked to attend and hand out the prizes along with executive member of Breckland Mr Adrian Stasiak. I was honoured to do so.
