Goals galore for D/S squad

Success for the Down's Syndrome team in latest set of fixtures

The Community Sports Foundation’s (CSF) Down’s Syndrome team enjoyed a successful afternoon at the Football Development Centre in Bowthorpe last Saturday.

The squad took on teams from Inspire Suffolk in a round-robin tournament, which consisted of a series of fifteen minute six-a-side games.

Supporters were treated to an impressive total of over thirty goals across the matches, as well as some fine displays of sportsmanship and teamwork.
