Kirkley and Pakefield Befriending Scheme Team, TBS’ very own football team, played in the FA People’s Cup in London on Sunday!
Everyone had been hoping to secure a place at the
London event and a top of the table win in Ipswich on 24th February sealed it!
It was a fantastic day for the team, led by manager Bob and accompanied by CEO of TBS Shirley Moore (a self-confessed football fanatic!) and Co-ordinator Christine Roe.
The team missed out on a place in the semi-finals by a single point, but spirits remained high, and everyone was just happy to have had an exciting day meeting other teams and playing competitive football.
Featuring TBS members from the Lowestoft area the team has has gone from strength to strength in the last couple of years playing at events throughout Suffolk, including the
Suffolk Football Associations Ability Counts League.
The opportunity to play at the FA People’s Cup was a tremendous achievement for all the players and a first for Kirkley and Pakefield FC. We congratulate them. Bring on the next match!
