On Saturday 9 July, a team from David Allen took part in the Billy Rafferty Football Challenge in aid of Carlisle Youth Zone. The turnout was fantastic – 12 teams of local business men and women, split into 3 groups, with 4 teams in each group. We were placed in group C and were playing against Armstrong Watson, Sow Rats FC and Bayern Neverlusen.
After braving the weather and fighting for a place in the final we were pipped to the post by The Sow Rats who went on to get knocked out in the semi finals of the Competition. The overall winners were Dodd & Co who defeated AC Lowmoor in the final.
All in all it was a great day. All proceeds raised are to be donated to Carlisle Youth Zone and will be spent on new sporting equipment for the junior club.
Well done to all that took part!
