PPG Canalside hosts Expect’s Tournament Date: 11/06/2014

Huddersfield Town’s PPG Canalside hosted Club Partner Expect Distribution’s Football tournament in aid of the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.

The event, held on Sunday 8 June at Town’s training ground, was hosted by local haulage firm Expect Distribution and saw 16 teams compete for the cup.

Teams entered included Expect Distribution, Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and a Town Legends team captain by Club Ambassador Andy Booth.

After seven games each in two separate leagues, Expect were knocked out in the semi -finals by the Code Blue Digital team, who then went on to beat Town Legends in the final.

Other entertainment on the day included face painting by Artifaces and a 25ft climbing wall, with all proceeds going to Town’s charity partner the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.

Event Organiser Gemma Bentley of Expect Distribution, said: “It was a fantastic day, with great community spirit. Thank you to all that entered and all that came to support such a great cause.  We chose to support the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, as it supports local children and families of children with life limiting illness.”

Huddersfield Town’s Senior Commercial Manager Tracy Nelson said: “We are delighted that Expect chose to host their tournament at PPG Canalside. It was a superbly organised event and well done to the winners at Code Blue Digital!”
