Priestley win Team NINETEEN football event

warrington college footballPRIESTLEY College won the male league in the recent regional Team NINETEEN tournament.

Held at Orford Jubilee Park, 14 student teams from across the North West showcased their talents.

Cheshire was represented by Priestley, Wirral Metropolitan, Macclesfield, Stockport and South Cheshire College.

The tournament had a World Cup theme, with the top two from each group going through into knockout matches.

All of the matches were played in great spirit, yet the competitive edge was there throughout and Priestley did Cheshire proud emerging as winners of the male league, with fine performances too from the three other male teams.

There were also two girls’ teams representing Cheshire – both from South Cheshire College – and even though Manchester College came out on top, they did the county proud.

Prizes were also handed out for Team Spirit, Goal of the Tournament and Best Celebration after scoring a goal, so every game featured flair and skill as each player tried to outshine the others.

“From day one Team NINETEEN has been a fantastic initiative helping students get involved in football and once again they have helped facilitate another brilliant event, bringing together colleges from across the region,” said Andy Turner, County Football Development Officer for Colleges at Cheshire FA.

“Warrington Collegiate hosted a superb event and I would just like to say how proud I am of all the college students from Cheshire who took part; they were a credit to the county.

“Priestley were fantastic too, winning the male section and I hope everyone who was involved from across Cheshire is encouraged to stay in football and attend events like this in the future.”
