During the summer holidays, Halifax Central Initiative in partnership with local businesses ran a successful summer soccer league, with 78 children aged 9-15 taking part across the six weeks and 55 young people taking part in the final day of the tournament. It was a fantastic multicultural event for young people from across Calderdale from different cultural backgrounds to compete together.
The winning team from age group 9-11 was Superstars and aged 12-15 was Classic 7.
The event was attended by Councillor Faisal Shoukat, Councillor Jenny Lynn, Director of Young People Services Stuart Smith and staff from Metaldyne. A big thank you to Himmat staff for volunteering to coach all sessions.
We would like to say a big thank you to Metaldyne for making this happen.
