Football tournament praised for raising profile

A football tournament organised by Amber Valley Community Safety Partnership has been praised for raising awareness of work on positive activities.

Organised to coincide with Heanor Festival week, the five-a-side competition was run on a league basis and involved a total of nine teams.

Matthew Walker entered two teams, as did the Red Lion from Derby Road in Heanor. Aldercar and Langley Mill Boxing Club, which has received support from the Community Safety Partnership in the past, was represented.

Others teams vying for the trophy on Wilmot Street Recreation Ground were Marlpool United, the Heanor All Stars, Undynamic and Norfolk 'n' Chance.

Marlpool United met Undynamic in a closely fought final which went to penalties and eventually saw Marlpool triumph with a 3 - 2 score line.

Members of the winning team and the runners-up were each presented with trophies by David Rowley, Chairman of the Heanor Festival Week Committee.

Amber Valley Community Safety Partnership's Assistant Community Safety Officer Vicki England, who co-ordinated the event, said: "We are very grateful to everyone who took part and particularly to Sporting Futures who provided the referees.

"Heanor Festival showcases positive aspects of the town and this event saw members of the community from pub teams to local businesses coming together."

The success of the event was reported back to the Partnership's Violence, Alcohol harm and Licensing (VAL) group when it met on Thursday. (July 14) Community Safety Officer Sally Price said it had brought members of the community together and raised the profile of the Partnership and its work on positive activities.
