Northern Ireland’s First 5 Nations Homeless Football Tournament Comes to a Successful Close

22 September 2016

The atmospheric event, which saw teams from Northern Ireland compete against Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England, was a huge success for players and Street Soccer NI Organisers alike, with Northern Ireland’s men’s teams making it to the final and the N.I women’s team putting on a very respectable performance in their first ever tournament.

The overall winners of both cups were Scotland, who narrowly beat Northern Ireland in the men’s final and Republic of Ireland in the women’s final to secure both 5 Nations Winners titles and travel back across the water feeling very proud of themselves.

 

The Players and coaches were treated to an evening reception at Belfast City Hall as part of the two day tournament and the Lord Mayor of Belfast attended the first day of football to welcome the visiting teams.

 

Worthingtons Solicitors were pleased to lend their support to this new initiative and are delighted to congratulate all the players involved for making the 5 Nations such a great success.
