The Kitty Wilkinson Cup

We welcomed our friends Street Soccer Northern Ireland over for a match to play for The Kitty Wilkinson Cup. Please read Kittys story below
We knew it would be a fitting tribute for the lady known as “Saint of the Slums”
A great match at Walton Hall Park ending in victory for LHFC over Street Soccer NI but today was about two agencies coming together; using football to improve lives. It was great speaking to a few of the NI lads who stated “the project in Derry has saved my life” with another lad regarding himself as a daily drinker explained how by getting involved with Street Soccer NI he has been able to reduce his drinking.
Football; it’s more than a game !
