Orpheus student Harry and his football team, Sutton United, travelled to Northern Ireland to take part in the annual George Best Community Cup. The two day tournament is a celebration of disability football welcoming teams from throughout the United Kingdom.

Harry and Sutton United managed to win ability band two, beating Northern Ireland side CSP 2-0 in a tight final and Harry scored a vital goal in the qualifying stage.


 Tournament organiser and IFA Disability Football Development Manager Alan Crooks was delighted with this year’s tournament.

 He pointed out: “The support we get from the George Best Foundation through the Mary Peters Trust has enabled us to develop the competition to the size it is today.

 “It was great to see so many visiting clubs from other parts of the UK, including the disability sections of the likes of Liverpool and QPR.

 “The football was exciting in all four bands and it was good to see so many players of all ability levels getting the opportunity to play competitive football. Congratulations to all the players, coaches and volunteers who made the 2019 George Best Community Cup a memorable one.”

 Well done Harry and Sutton United!
