New Directions Education was delighted to be able to support Stockport football club’s Community Cup scheme recently by helping with sponsorship. The Manchester team hosted a 6-a-side tournament for primary schools across the Stockport bourgh.
The competition which involved more than 30 teams resulted in a closely fought victory for Etchells Primary School from Cheadle, who beat Moorfield Primary School from Hazel Grove in an exciting final played at Stockport FC base. The two finalists had battled their way through qualifying tournaments held earlier in the year.
Gareth Beaumont, New Directions Manchester Branch Manager said ‘As a company we are always keen to support grass roots work that involves the schools we work with. Our head office in Cardiff has had a long tradition of hosting competitions with Cardiff City Football Club and now our Manchester team is following by example. Well done to all the schools and players who took part and for showing respectful behaviour and sportsmanship’.
New Directions Education with branches across England and Wales provides recruitment, staffing and training services to all sectors of the education service.
