MASTER Climate Solutions Football Cup 2017

7th April, 2017

Master team finish in second place!

On 7th April 2017, at the stadium in Jarocin near Poznań the International Master Climate Solutions Football Cup 2017 was held. It was the youth football tournament *(in the category U19). This great venue was attended by four strong teams: three from local Polish football clubs: Jarota Jarocin, WKS Witaszyce and Polonia Środa Wlkp., and *(Wollaton Hall Yell) from UK - supported for years by MASTER.

From the very beginning the atmosphere was amazing and the spirit of sport rivalry was felt all the time. Despite unfavourable weather on that day the young footballers played great matches. Even the cold and a few injuries did not discourage them and they bravely fought to the end. The team with the Master logo on T-shirts showed its strength and incredible skills from the very beginning and was in clear lead. Only in the last game, after a courageous fight the opponents gained the advantage and finally our Master team took a high second place.

Regardless the results all players left with a smile on their faces and with substantial baggage of new experience. At the end, there was an official closing ceremony of the tournament and the awards were given to the players. Each team got the trophies and commemorative medals.

After the intensive tournament, our Master team spent a lovely weekend in Poznań. It was a great opportunity for them to get known with the most interesting places in the city and local customs. They visited the Old Market Square and the most popular leisure center in Poznań at Malta lake. The Master footballers competed not only in the football field but also during other sport attractions like Laser Tag in an old fort or on the karting track testing their driving skills.

The coaches emphasize that a good team is built not only during hard workouts, but also through joint integration. The visit in Poznań was a great team building activity that strengthened the team spirit and motived them to further improve their training together.

We hope to see Wollaton Hall team again in Poland!

*in the category U19 – for Wollaton the age group is U18.
