The AFC Fylde Community Foundation has recently held its first ever football tournament for its partners to celebrate the work carried out across the Fylde Coast.

The tournament, held at Mill Farm Sports Village, saw 85 participants from Cuadrilla, Spirit Energy, BAE Systems, McDonald’s, Cumbria and Lancashire Rehabilitation Company and AFC Fylde Community Foundation, take part in the knockout competition.

BAE Systems took home the trophy, as winners of the tournament, with the event acting as a platform for Foundation investors to celebrate their positive impact on the Fylde Coast and build lasting personal and business relationships with one another.

Tom Hutton, Director, AFC Fylde Community Foundation, said: “The football tournament was a great opportunity to showcase the strong business and investment potential the Foundation offers to both multi-national organisations and local businesses.

“It was also a way to say thank you to our partners for helping the AFC Fylde Community Foundation make a positive and lasting impact across the Fylde Coast. We hope to make the football tournament an annual event, to celebrate the fantastic work the Foundation does as a result of the investment from our partners.”

Paul Earnshaw, Head of Communications, BAE Systems, added: “The tournament was a fantastic way to celebrate the support of AFC Fylde Community Foundation’s partners. We were delighted to take part and our team winning the tournament was an added bonus!

“The number of people taking part shows the commitment we all share to support the Foundation and we would like to thank them for their hard work making a positive impact to our local community.”
