Saints Foundation - One March tournament

By SFC Media Wed 25 Oct One March

Last week the club celebrated One March week. To mark the occasion Saints Foundation hosted its first ever One March tournament at Staplewood Campus on Monday 16th October.

The event was designed to bring together boys and girls of all ages and abilities from schools Saints Foundation works with, including Community Champion Schools and Special Educational Needs Schools.

The day was made up of an inclusion workshop, with the participants interacting with each other to design their own pennant to reflect what inclusion and equality meant to them, and football activity.

Jack Rutter, England Cerebral Palsy Captain, spoke to everyone involved about his story; about when he was on the verge of signing a professional contract with Birmingham City, his struggles with coming to terms with his disability after being assaulted on a night out, to his rise through the disability football pathway and on to becoming captain of the England Cerebral Palsy football team.

This was followed by an inclusive football tournament with players being mixed with people from other schools and representing countries from around the world.

Our very own Kelvin Davis dropped in to hand out the medals to all players.
