As mentioned in last weeks news story, we take great pride in supporting our local communities, and providing support for the football tournament for local schools is just one of the ways we can do that.
New Directions Education Account manager Jen Morrison who has been involved from the beginning commented “ The atmosphere at the tournament last week really was great. It was fantastic to see all the schools coming together and really getting stuck in! I am attending this evenings games and am looking forward to supporting the pupils who I have had the pleasure to meet this week. Looks like the rain is holding off too which is a definite bonus!.”
