Albion academy stars help to run youth football tournament

Albion academy stars help to run youth football tournament

Children from primary schools across Sussex came together for a football tournament at the Triangle in Burgess Hill.

BHAFC Foundation tutors hosted an Albion Cup tournament for youngsters from schools for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), and SEND pupils in mainstream schools.

Dozens of children joined us for the tournament, which encouraged the kids to have fun and enjoy themselves on the football pitch.

Young scholars from the Albion academy helped our tutors to run the event.

The academy stars chipped in by acting as referees, team coaches, and helping with the tournament scoring.

After a day full of fun and inclusive football action, Cuckmere House School ended up as the overall winners.

Hayley Templeman, Disability Development Officer for the Foundation, said: “The Albion Cup is always a fantastic event, every year we get such great feedback from the schools that take part.

“The kids all had a brilliant time today, and it was really nice to see so many of them enjoying themselves and making new friends.

“It was also great to see the Albion academy scholars give up their time to help us run the tournament. I know the children enjoyed having them around, and hopefully the scholars enjoyed their time with us as well.”

  • Palatine Primary School
  • Cuckmere House School
  • Seadown School
  • New Horizons Primary School
