On 26th September 2012 the Express men’s 5 a-side football team competed in a charity football tournament at the Powerleague in Trafford Park. The tournament ran as 2 leagues with 2 semi-finals, a 3rd/4th place play off and a final with a trophy presentation to finish. The boys did brilliantly coming 2nd out of 13 teams! The Express team went undefeated right until the final game knocking out team after team as they made their way to the top of the leader boards. Salmaan Shahid was the top goal scorer in the team closely followed by Partner Richard Lowery, with self proclaimed Player of the Tournament’ going to Kevin Proctor! Money was raised from teams paying £130 to compete in the tournament and went to the Beechwood Cancer Care Centre – a day centre aiming to help anyone whose life has been affected by the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
