The Mayor of Guildford’s charity six-a-side football tournament was a thrilling day for everyone involved. Spectators were treated to over fifty games with eighteen teams competing in recreational and competitive categories.

Players showed exceptional skill and passion as they competed throughout the day.

The Mayor’s award for sportsmanship went to Shah’s Secreto.

Thanks to generous donations, sponsorship, team entry fees, the raffle and secret auction, the Mayor hopes to raise several thousand pounds. The money raised will help the Fountain Centre continue supporting cancer patients and their loved ones through a cancer diagnosis.

Cllr Barker said: “The feeling and ethos behind the tournament was amazing. There was a lovely atmosphere and community spirit throughout the day.

“Our special thanks goes to the committee at Guildford City Boys and Girls FC for organising and running such a successful tournament, along with the Guildford Lions for their marshalling on the day.”
