Ben Hyams, who organised the event, would like to thank everyone that gave up their time to help out on the day, all 12 teams involved and the local businesses that generously donated raffle prizes.

With everyone working together they managed to raise £1,026.08 for a fantastic cause.

The final saw Boca Seniors come out on top with a 1-0 victory against Saxon Sevens, who had previously beaten them by the same scoreline in the group stage.

James Taylor’s calm finish, in off the post, secured Boca Seniors the late win and the title.
