SOS Football Team get to the Final at Wembley!

Team SOS fell agonisingly close to bringing home the Bobby Moore Charity 5-A-Side Cup as they went down 4-3 on penalties in the final after a 1-1 draw in regular time under the shadow of the famous Wembley Stadium arches.

After impressive wins in the group stage, including a stunning 13-3 success in which all four outfield players scored a hat-trick, Team SOS went on to negotiate the Quarter and Semi Finals with 5-3 and 4-3 wins respectively, before falling just short in the final.

Team Captain Zahid commented ‘It was a great night for the team, I’m really proud of the way the players played the game in the right spirit and with a smile on their faces. Also to raise money for charity at the same time made it all the more rewarding – we hope to go one better next time!’

Team SOS will be participating in other fundraising tournaments in the near future, watch this space for details!
