The champions and a side from Care By Us both represented hosts Bishop's Stortford Community Football Club in the tournament.

Four other squads made up of players who attend day centres in the county were also in action.

It was the ninth running of the event, which has traditionally seen the Home Farm Trust taking on St Elizabeth's. The latter did not enter a team this year, so organiser Ray Greenwood opened it up to other organisations.

"It was our most successful one yet," said Greenwood, who is BSCFC's lead inclusion coach as well as being lead coach for the under-12 to under-18 boys and girls' development coach.

"Everyone gets a medal in a presentation afterwards and there's a buffet for the players and their carers.

"It's just a great day for everyone to take part."

The event was put on thanks to a grant from The National League Trust, whose funding partners are the Premier League and the Professional Footballers' Association.
