Students studying on the foundation studies course at Riverside College are preparing to host the penultimate round of the Pan Ability League football competition at the Stobart Stadium on Wednesday 14th March
The North West Pan Ability League is an inter-college 7-aside tournament which creates opportunities for footballers with varying levels of ability and impairments to play football. Each college will host one tournament each month when all of the teams play each other.
The Riverside College team are looking forward to continuing their winning streak on the new i-pitch at the Stobart Stadium after winning five games and drawing one at the last tournament in February at Morecambe College. This puts the team in first position overall and they are hoping to be crowned champions in front of a home crowd.
The team are hoping to play to a full crowd and are urging fellow students, friends and family to come along and support them. They have even organised refreshments for their supporters.
Phil Haden a foundation studies tutor and the team manager said,” I know the team are looking forward to playing in front of our home crowd and are excited about playing in the Stobart Stadium. I am extremely proud of the team as they have worked well to be in the top position and have already qualified for the National finals in Bath which will take place, the last weekend in March. We hope everyone will come to the Stobart Stadium to cheer the team on, it promises to be a great afternoon. ”
